The National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC) has warned Nigerians to desist from taking cup of tea popularly known as `Maishayi’ from Hausa tea vendors.
NAFDAC Director-General, Prof. Mojisola Adeyeye, sounded the warning during a media chat in Abuja on Monday.
Adeyeye said the agency received information that the Hausa tea vendors now mix intoxicating drugs in the tea prepared for customers.
According to her, the intoxicating drugs include Tramadol, Vieteling, Marijuana and others, could lead to loss of life after consumption.
“In the US, lots of people are dying because of these medicines. How can such medicines mix with palm wine in the name of getting high in Nigeria?
There are some medicines you cannot take if you have cardiovascular problem’’ she said.
