NAFDAC Bans Sniper Insecticide In Open Market (Details)



Due to the increase in the number of death caused by the use of sniper insecticide, the National Agency for Food, Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC) has decided to place a ban on its sales in open markets and supermarkets.

Since Sniper hit the Nigerian market, it has become the favourite of most Nigerians, especially the poor for killing mosquitoes and other pests but unfortunately it also became a killing/suicide tool for the youths who use it to end their lives at the least provocation e.g failure in examinations, heartbreak, financial issues etc. 


NAFDAC’s Director, Veterinary Medicine and Allied Products Directorate, Dr. Bukar Usman, made the ban known on Wednesday at the International Institute of Tropical Agriculture (IITA), Ibadan, where he said that the agency had asked agro-dealers to stop the sale of the product in open markets and supermarkets.


According to him, sniper is an agro-cultural product meant to be used only in the farms and not for households.



Usman maintained that the directive was not an outright ban of the product but a restriction of its use and availability to farms alone.


He also called on manufacturers and dealers to cooperate with NAFDAC to mop up the 100ml size of the product which was cheap and easily acquired, adding that all agro-chemicals meant for farms should not be used in households.

“There are appropriate products for the control of mosquitoes and other household pests” he added
