2016 Miss Tourism Nigeria, Ekama, was almost sent to an early grave after she took an expired Nutri-C. According to Ekama who wondered why the store would keep an expired product for sale, she almost lost her life because of ignorance.
She concluded her post by advising Nigerians to always check for expiry dates of products, before buying from stores. Here’s what Ekama, 2016 Miss Tourism Nigeria wrote;

This is coming few months after it was discovered that it was actually an expired Malaria drug, that killed Nigerian gospel singer, Eric Arubayi.
Confirming the demise of the gospel artiste, his brother, Derrick Arubayi, in an exclusive chat with Vanguard, explained that the late Eric took ill after taking an expired drug meant to treat his malaria and typhoid ailment.
He said: “He had malaria and typhoid, which was untreated. It later became worse after he took a medication that had expired and this triggered his liver ailment and afterwards, every other thing just followed at a fast pace before his death.
The only thing that we had to say is that he lived for Christ. We just want the world to know that the name Eric Odafe Arubayi was for a reason beyond the West Africa Idol show.
For that reason, God would make manifest even beyond his glorious ascension.”
