Actress Precious Fella Makafui has reportedly been arrested for selling unregistered products to the public.

Her arrest was facilitated by the investigative documentary filmmaking firm ISPYGH 247, in collaboration with the Pharmacy Council Ghana.

She was taken into custody on Wednesday, May 22, 2024, for engaging in unlawful activities related to the sale of unregistered drugs.

Her alleged crimes also include false advertising and disseminating unapproved adverts by the Food and Drugs Authority (FDA).

After a six-month surveillance operation monitoring Fella’s social media posts on platforms such as TikTok and Instagram, Akwasi Koranteng, the lead investigator, and his team of undercover journalists from ISPYGH 247 gathered evidence of her illegal activities.

Following her arrest, 16 different products were confiscated, including:

Fertility Tea (Fibroid and Womb Tea) Butt and Hips Enlargement Syrup Butt and Hip Enlargement Oil Booty Cream Booty Scrub Hip and Big Butt Tea Breast Firming and Enlargement Cream Vagina Detox Pearls Male Sexual Vitality Tea Spice Herbal Infection Mixture Yoni Wash Gel Orgasmic Gel Weight Gain Syrup Spice Coded Powder Tiger Herbal Mixture Sweet Drip Honey

These products were seized from her shop in Mempeasem.

In a statement, the investigators said Fella admitted that most of the drugs she sold were not registered with the FDA. She was subsequently granted bail pending further investigation.

This joint operation aims to protect the public from harmful and unapproved products, ensuring adherence to pharmaceutical regulations and upholding standards of pharmaceutical care.
