Fake wine factory uncovered in Delta » More Naija


The Nigerian Police say their investigation shows that Boko Haram, Ansaru and other terrorist groups are receiving support from some Nigerians.

Delta State Police Command said Thursday that officers have discovered a factory where fake wine was produced for public consumption.

Acting Command Public Relations Officer DSP Bright Edafe, who made this known in Asaba, said the alleged sole maker of the fake wine was now chilling in police custody.

Edafe said that operatives from the State Anti-Cult Unit (SACU) made the breakthrough during a covert operation in collaboration with the civilian anti-cult volunteer corps.

He said the suspect, one Kenneth Ajie, allegedly turned his home in the Amadaga community in Ovwian, Udu, into the illegal factory where he produces the fake alcohol.

The suspect, who produces fake wine at his home, operates without a license.

According to the suspect, he sells the wine for N300.00 per bottle and N3,600 per box.

He confessed that he bottles the wine himself, using bottles that had already been used and discarded.

“And he buys these bottles for N10.00 a bottle, and he also buys the cork on the open market.

He claims that he washes the bottles himself, corks the wine himself, and sells to the public.

“According to him, he works alone and produces between one and three boxes a day,” said Edafe.

Edafe said the exhibits, including the bottles of the drinks suspected of being fake alcoholic wine, were recovered, adding that the matter is still under investigation.
