The Customs Area Controller, Comptroller Bashar Yusuf, revealed this while handing over the container to officials of the National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC).

“Why should indigenous menu be imported into the country at a time when investors are much sought after to boost local industries,’’ Yusuf asked.
