Nyor said that the water from the factories was seen in the town, but the locations of the factories or their time of production remained unknown to the agency.
”There are a lot of sachet water manufacturers without proper addresses, sometimes these people produced water in the night.
”If you go to the facilities, you will not see anybody and nothing is happening in the factories, but still their water is seen in the town.
“As matter of fact, there are some places we went to and we discovered that the factories had been turned into residential houses,“ Nyor said.
The coordinator, who expressed worry over the development, said that the agency was working to arrest the situation, through intelligence gathering, adding that already, three water factories had been sealed in the state, following the expiration and non-renewal of their production licenses.
Nyor said that there were over 200 registered water manufacturers in the state and the agency had ensured that the producers maintained Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) because it was found that some of the manufacturers, after being registered and numbered, deviated from what they were licensed for.
