The value of the counterfeiting industry is estimated to be roughly N6 Trillion globally.
According to the former Director-general of Standards Organization of Nigeria, “95 percent of automobile spare parts imported into Nigeria were fake or substandard. Nigeria were shocked that that they had been dancing with death by relying on the fake spare parts used to replace faulty ones in their vehicles”.
