Governor Willie Obiano of Anambra State has recommended a death penalty for people found guilty of selling fake drugs.
The governor speaking during his visit to the National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC) laboratory in Agulu on Monday said,
“It’s the worst criminal act to humanity. Fake drug is the worst crime anybody can commit. There is no need jailing such people; they should be killed.
“I would want to recognise the presence of the husband of the late Prof. Akunyili. Today is a day for celebration for you. Akunyili’s name is immortal. Posterity will ever be grateful to her for what she did in this agency and for the country.”
