Also, unsuspecting members of the public, particularly those who eat from roadside eateries and make shift ‘bukateria’ are getting hooked on drugs without them knowing because some unscrupulous food vendors mix their delicacies with concoctions to induce addiction to their meals and boost sales.
The Assistant Director, Drug Demand Reduction Division (DDRD) of the National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC), Mrs. Clara Anyanwu, who disclosed these trends Reporters identified “noodles” as one fast food such unscrupulous food sellers prepare with drugs and serve customers.
Mrs. Anyanwu said this informed why some people would by – pass many locations and go some distances away to patronise a particular food vendor, whereas there are other food sellers nearby.
She spoke shortly after delivering a talk – shop on ‘abnormal drug use: the modern vices militating against elevation (of youths) by God,’ at the 2018 National Youth Convention of the Fresh Anointing International Church, in Ogun State.
