News Agency of Nigeria reported that the Standards Organisation of Nigeria in collaboration with the Iron Rod Distributors Association of Nigeria has seized substandard iron rods worth NGN 15 million.

The substandard rods were supplied by African Steel Nigeria Ltd. The owner of the iron rod ran away. We sealed the place and went with one rod for further testing and as an evidence. The substandard iron will be taken to SON factory to be remelted and be used to produce standard ones.”
