A team of the Surveillance, Investigation and Monitoring (SIM), Unit of the Standard Organization of Nigeria (SON), have exposed a lubricant adulterating syndicate at a residential property situated at number 25 Isoko Street, Sunny Bus-stop, Ojo, in the Alaba International Market area of Lagos State.
The suspect, Chizoba Emmanuel , was found on the premises with various drums of base oil and empty drums which he used to mix and repackage the substandard lubricants where he was arrested.
Director General, SON, Mallam Farouk Salim was represented by the Coordinator SIM Unit, Mr. Suleiman Isa, who described the discovery as shocking, stating that it was indeed a wake-up call for Nigerians and particularly the organization that there is still work to be done.
According to him, despite SON’s several arrests in the past, deviant Nigerians still persist in the act of adulterating engine oil and selling to unsuspecting Nigerians destroying machinery and engines.
“SON will not relent in the ongoing fight against unscrupulous elements who persist in defrauding unsuspecting Nigerians through their dubious acts” he said.
The SON boss also advised importers and local manufacturers to always do the right thing by upholding standards in all their undertakings, stating it will ensure a vibrant economy through strengthening of businesses as they adhere to international best practices.
