Prof Mojisola Adeyeye,  Director-General of NAFDAC, raised the alarm in a statement released by the agency’s Resident Media Consultant, Sayo Akintola.

She warned Nigerians “to refrain from procuring the vaccine online to avoid falling into the wrong hands of merchants of death.”

She also warned Nigerians to be vigilant and expose anyone who might want to divert COVID-19 vaccines donated by international donors for profiteering.
