Kano State Consumer Protection Council, supervised by the Acting Managing Director, Dr Baffa Babba Dan’Agundi, on Tuesday swooped on a warehouse stocked with adulterated fertilizer in Gunduwawa.

Dan’Agundi, who made the disclosure via the Senior Special Assistant to Governor Ganduje on Consumer Quality Assurance, Alhaji Salisu Muhammad, hinted that the council suspected that the owners of the warehouse often mixed original fertilizer with sand and thereafter re-bagged and sold it to unsuspecting farmers.

In a press statement issued by KSCPC Information Officer, Musbahu Aminu Yakasai, quoted Salisu Muhammad as saying that another warehouse was stumbled upon at Garko Local Government engaged in adulteration of fertilizer, adding that a trailer loaded with expired Semovita was equally intercepted in Singa market.
