Isn’t that what this implies?

Chinese Label Dangerous and Fake Drugs as “Made in India”

Nigeria’s food and drug watchdog, the National Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC), has seized Chinese-made fake generic anti-malarial drugs with the label ‘Made in India’.

India had long suspected that many Chinese firms conspiring with Nigerian drug traders, were dumping fake drugs in Nigeria, to be sold locally as well as in some other African countries like West Africa, South Africa, Ghana and the Ivory Coast.

After being alerted by the Indian high commissioner in the Nigerian capital Abuja, the Indian government has lodged a strong protest with the Chinese foreign trade ministry.

The Indian high commission in Nigeria had been aware for some time that Chinese companies were pushing fake drugs with the ‘Made in India’ tag since Indian generic drugs are the preferred choice of importers in Nigeria.
