NAFDAC is said to be partnering with other relevant bodies on this as part of plans to discourage the use of Sniper as a tool for suicide.

The National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC), is considering modifying the container of popular insecticide, Sniper, over the recent increase in its use for suicide in Nigeria.

NAFDAC is said to be partnering with other relevant bodies on this as part of plans to discourage the use of Sniper as a tool for suicide.

The Director General of the agency, Prof. Christiana Adeyeye, made the disclosure during NAFDAC’s commemoration of World Food Safety Day.

According to her, sniper containers could now be made very difficult to open, or sniper may be totally turned into a spray rather than the liquid contents it is known for.

The suicide rate has increased in Nigeria with Sniper among the agents popularly used.
