According to him, "we recovered 71 bottles of locally produced codeine, 30 bottles of Tutolin, one carton of ORS used for codeine productions and one pot of codeine ready for refilling.

"Others include 100 empty scavenged bottles, 60 bottles top cover and 1 20 product name tags.

“The case is under investigation after which the suspect will be charged to court,".

The police spokesman assured that the command would not relent in its efforts to rid the state of crimes and criminality.

However, the suspect (Oguwu) in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) denied manufacturing fake drugs, claiming: “I was set up to pay for those items not knowing what was inside and what is meant for.

“I paid N140,000 that my friend from Onitsha asked me to pay and collect the goods before he comes from his journey.

“Not knowing that police are coming to arrest me, in fact, I don’t know anything about fake drugs manufacturing, it was unfortunate he involved me in that. ”

He, however, appealed to the police to temper justice with mercy.
