The registrar who was represented by the council’s director of enforcement, Pharm. Stephen Esumobi, said; “Some of the sealed stores illegally sell substances of abuse to members of the public for financial gains. Some of these substances eventually get into the hands of criminal elements who take them as confidence boosters before carrying out their operations.”
