About 42 anti-malaria drugs have been listed by the Nigerian Senate to have been banned in Europe but are still sold in hospitals and pharmacies in the country.

The lawmakers raised the alarm that all the forty two anti-malaria drugs were still being stockpiled, sold and consumed in the country.

Hence, the Senate has mandated its Committee on Health (Secondary and Tertiary), led by Senator Olarewaju Tejuoso, to urgently carry out a holistic investigation into the matter and report back for further action.

Raising the motion earlier, Senator Theodore A. Orji, Abia Central said:
