The National Biosafety Management Agency (NBMA) has warned members of the public to be wary of genetically-modified products that are on offer in some stores. It said none of the products has yet been approved for local and commercial consumption.
The agency said that it had started working with some major stores to withdraw the items from the Nigerian market.
Executive Director of the agency, Dr. Rufus Ebegba, who spoke with The Guardian at the General Aviation Terminal of the Murtala Muhammed International Airport, Lagos, said NBMA remained the only regulatory agency for such products and had till date not approved any for commercial use.
