A Nigerian man has taken to a popular Nigeria forum to warn the general public on a particular fake insecticide that is already in circulation.
According to the man, a certain insecticide brand known as Rambo has been counterfeited by some persons and they are already selling it across the country.
The counterfeit item is a different brand entirely, but covered in a Rambo wrap.

Good morning guys…
So recently I made a shocking discovery, I’m still in shock sef.
I got a 300ml container of Rambo insecticide recently, the white one.
In the process of using it, I discovered it wasn’t as effective as I used to remember it to be.
Like how do you spray a cockroach and it still has time to call family meeting before eventually dying some 2 hours later after several repetitions of the spray??
But then, I felt they have probably joined the growing list of dubious companies reducing quality and quantity of their products in a bid to shortchange the consumers(we are always on the receiving end).
I finally exhausted the insecticide while it mainly served as air freshner since it was useless as an insecticide.
Since I burn my waste, I ensure I always pierce containers with compressed air to avoid those explosive sounds that come from exposing them to extreme heat.
So I pierced the Rambo container o, only to notice something like a layer of polythene on the surface.
Out of curiousity, I peeled the layer further and I was left dumbfounded…
An upside-down container of an inferior GONGON insecticide hidden below a polythene layer of Rambo.
Now I have reasons to believe even the GONGON is not the original GONGON considering that the print on it was upside down.
Now while this might not be much of an issue considering we are in the infamous country, Nigeria… But do we even have any idea the sort of chemicals were compressed into that container?
On that note, everyone should please be careful when purchasing these things. Since our government can’t protect us, the least we can do is protect ourselves.
