SON Uncovers N8bn Worth Of Cloned Cables In Lagos

The Standards Organisation of Nigeria (SON) has uncovered over N8billion worth of cloned cables at two residential buildings in the Ajangbadi area of Lagos.

Its enforcement team uncovered the warehouses, where 20 different brands of cloned cables were kept.

Made-in-Nigeria cables and other brands like NOCAN, Surecan, Necaco, Kablemex, Purecan and Nigertin, among others, were cloned in China.

SON Director, Inspectorate and Compliance Bede Obayi conducted reporters round the fake projects on behalf of agency’s Director-General Osita Aboloma. He said the items belonged to Estobest Electrical Limited.


Aboloma said the firm’s officials and others implicated in the illegal deal would be made to face the wrath of the law.

He said the company targeted and cloned Nigerian cables already certified by the SON, in deceptive packages.

He added that more of such firms would be uncovered.
