Guinness-1024x655Guinness Nigeria Plc has dragged the National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control, NAFDAC, before a Lagos High Court in Igbosere over the N1b fine imposed on it by the agency.

The company prayed the court to henceforth stop NAFDAC from publicly discussing, analysing or providing any information to the media, whether print, electronic or in any other manner,” to suggest that the decision to sanction it was lawful.

Guinness, through its lawyer, Mr. Olasupo Shasore (SAN), claimed that NAFDAC did not afford it the opportunity of fair hearing as to the allegations that prompted the controversial fine.
