Sixty-nine and a half crates of expired alcohol have been impounded by the Consumer Protection Council (CPC) from a distributor located at Awba-Ofemmili, Awka North LGA of Anambra State.
This was disclosed by CPC’s South-East Zonal Coordinator, Mrs Ngozika Obidike, to newsmen in Awka.
Obidike said the seizure was made following complaints by residents of the area, about possible food poisoning after consuming a brand of alcoholic drinks allegedly purchased from the distributor.
“We visited the warehouse with policemen, and discovered that sixty-nine and half cartons of the drinks have all expired. We quickly took custody of them for investigation,” she said.
