A Federal High Court Lagos, on Wednesday, vacated a subpoena on a journalist with the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) following an application by the National Agency for Food and Drugs Administration and Control (NAFDAC).
The court vacated the subpoena in the trial of a defendant Chukwunonye Madubuike, following an application by NAFDAC prosecutor, Mr Washington Adume.
The defendant is charged with dealing in unwholesome products.
He was re-arraigned on March 14, 2019, before Justice Maureen Onyetenu, on a one-count of selling Emzolyn with codeine cough syrup.
He had pleaded not guilty to the charge and was granted bail.
