Dr. Kolawole stated that Nnabuihe’s arrest followed complaints lodged with the agency by consumers over fake Peak Milk Powder circulating in the market.
He said undercover investigation revealed that 56-year-old Nnabuihe was behind the counterfeiting, and he was arrested while making supplies to stores.
Admitting to the crime in a confessional statement, Nnabuihe said, “one 50kg of the milk will fill 27 pieces (two cartons and three pieces three pieces) and I sells one carton of the fake peak milk at N6000 and make a profit of N1,000 per carton.”
