Most of the stories coming out of China these days are about its emerging economic influence which is spreading across the world.

But once in a while, we do get shocking stories as well, such as this one which sounds quite incredible but has been confirmed by the authorities in Nigeria – that drugs made of human flesh are coming from the Asian power house.

Nigeria’s product standardisation agency, the Standard Organisation of Nigeria (SON) has confirmed the receipt of a letter sent on Chinese Drugs reported to be made from human flesh.

The National Intelligence Agency (NIA) earlier alerted the SON, National Agency for Food Drugs and Administration Control, NAFDAC and Nigerian Customs Service on a Chinese drugs made with human flesh.

The Technical Assistant/Head, Public Relations of the organisation, Mr Bola Fashina, explained that his organisation is on the lookout for the products even though he explained it was the primary responsibilities of both NAFDAC and Customs Service.

Investigations revealed that the capsules were filled with powdered flesh from dead babies.

They were made in North Eastern China from babies whose bodies were chopped into small pieces and dried on stoves before being turned into powder.

Thousands of the drugs were first confiscated in South Korea in 2012.

However, according to NIA, “the South Korean Customs Service, on 30 September, 2018, revealed that it had seized 2,751 Chinese drugs/capsules, containing human remains from foetus, infants and flesh imported into the country by some Chinese nationals.

“The manufacturer claims that the drugs/capsules can boost stamina, cure cancer, diabetes and some other terminal diseases.

“The capsules were smuggled in suitcases and through international mail.”
