Magnus Nwonka, 42, and Imo Lawrence, 35, have been placed under arrest by the Ojo Division officers of the Lagos State Police Command for allegedly having counterfeit beverages.

The public relations officer for the command, Benjamin Hundeyin, disclosed this in a video that he uploaded on his X Twitter account on Wednesday.

In the video, buckets, beverage crates, sachet water bags, and other items were seen in an unclean environment.

Hundeyin wrote, “Officers of Ojo Division today arrested the duo of Imo Lawrence ‘m’ aged 35 and Magnus Nwonka ‘m’ aged 42 in possession of fake drinks.

” In the course of investigation, the suspects led detectives to their inconspicuous, multi-room ‘factory.’ Investigation is ongoing.”

As reported by The PUNCH, the National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control recently arrested counterfeiters in the Eziukwu market in Aba, Abia state, who were manufacturing fake wines, soft drinks, and other items worth over N750,000,000.
