NAFDAC Seals Popular Ibadan Supermarket, PINNACLE Over Sale of Fake Products

The National Agency for Food and Drug Administration Control (NAFDAC) has sealed popular grocery and cosmetics supermarket, PINNACLE in Dugbe area of Ibadan over sale of fake products.

The supermarket, usually a beehive of activities is now a shadow of itself as the gate leading to the premises was shut with an inscription directing customers to its branch at Challenge area of the ancient city, citing technical issues as a reason for its closure.

According to an inside source who craved anonymity, the problem started on Tuesday 2nd April , 2024 when NAFDAC surveillance team stormed the mall to enforce total shutdown of the premises, thereby forcing shoppers out of the supermarket.

“The NAFDAC team came inside the mall and told us to close, even though people were many inside who wanted to do shopping but they couldn’t because the technical issue started and they all went away in disappointment”

According to the NAFDAC source, the agency had been on the trail of Pinnacle while the CEO had been invited since January, but she failed to turn up, hence the reason for the total shutdown.

“The woman displayed a total disregard to authority, despite the fact that fake products were traced to the mall. She was invited to the Lagos office, but didn’t oblige, nobody is above the law”, the source stated.
