Cassava starch, akpeteshie, mixed and packaged and sold as hand sanitizers in Kumasi

The outbreak of the deadly coronavirus and hand sanitizers coming in as the ultimate solution for prevention has caused some criminals to take undue advantage of the mad rush for hand sanitizers and defrauding unsuspecting Ghanaians through various schemes.

Since the outbreak, hand sanitizers have become hard to come by and the one you’ll get will be sold to you at a huge price.

Since it has become a money-making venture for some Ghanaians, some persons have also at the blind side of the Food and Drugs Authority (FDA) manufactured their version of alcohol-based hand sanitizer which they sell to the public at throat-cutting prices.

The modus operandi of such persons is collecting original bottles of hand sanitizer from companies which they clean and mix their own ingredients believed to be cassava starch and locally distilled gin, ‘Akpeteshie’ claiming it is the original contents of the container.

”Someone sold this, starch mixed with alcohol as hand sanitizer to a taxi driver for GHS90… Herhh nipa yɛ bad saa yɛ forkin”, a Kumasi-based Journalist, Barima Kwabena Owusu who blew the cover of these bandits wrote.
