It went on further to say, "It has come to the attention of the Management of the Food and Drugs Authority (FDA) that some of the Union’s vehicles are being used as platforms by drug peddlers to practice their trade".

Quoting the law, the statement said, "The Act states: ‘A person shall not manufacture, prepare, import, export, distribute, sell, supply or exhibit for sale of drug, herbal medicinal product, cosmetic, medical device or household chemical substance unless the article has been registered by the Food and Drugs Authority."
