The Food and Drugs Authority (FDA) has clarified its stance on regulating products that make spiritual claims, following public inquiries regarding 'kayamata,' a product marketed for its alleged ability to charm men.

Hajia Bintu breaks silence on backlash over 'Kayamata' advert with an apology

This clarification came after social media influencer Hajia Bintu advertised kayamata, prompting concerned citizens to question the FDA's regulatory responsibilities for such products.

In an official response on their X account, the FDA stated, "Per the law, the FDA is not mandated to oversee products that make spiritual claims.”

This comes after Fella Makafui has allegedly arrested on Wednesday, May 22,2024 for engaging in unlawful activities related to the sale of unregistered drugs.
