Two Fulanis charged with selling dubious herbal products
Takoradi, Feb. 7, GNA – Two Fulani traders from Niger, Suman Sadda, 30, and Sadu Suteru, 37, on Tuesday appeared before a Takoradi Circuit Court for allegedly advertising and selling dubious and unwholesome herbal products.
Their pleas were not taken and they were granted GH¢ 5,000 bail with one surety each to re-appear on February 24.
Police Inspector Seth Ahelegbe, said the Foods and Drugs Board had a tip-off that some people in Takoradi were selling herbal products whose potency, composition and safety were in doubt.
He said a team from the Board headed by a Regulatory Officer went to the spot where the accused persons were selling products that they alleged could cure waist pains, piles, constipation and sexual weakness.
Inspector Ahelegbe said the accused persons could not produce the necessary documents testifying that the products they were selling were safe to use when questioned by the team.
He said the accused persons were handed over to the Police and after further investigation were charged with the offense.
