Lagos Government Seals Twenty-four Pharmacies, Patent medicine stores.

Lagos State Commissioner for Health, Professor Akin Abayomi, says Twenty-four pharmacies and patent medicine stores in various parts of the state have been sealed for illegal operation and operating beyond scope of pharmaceutical practice.

Abayomi said the enforcement was part of the mandates of the Pharmaceutical Inspectorate Unit (PIU) of the ministry to end the ugly trend of unqualified personnel handling drugs.

He said t the affected pharmacies and patent medicine shops were sealed for operating without a licence; engaging unqualified persons to man and dispense drugs to unsuspecting citizens and operating beyond scope through the sale of unethical products.

Abayomi further explained that some of the premises visited were engaging in illegal clinical practices, such as patient admission and setting of intravenous infusions, both of which, he said, was unacceptable.
