Nigerian scientists reveal some market sellers have been frying akara, puff puff and other roadside food with transformer oil, preserving fried fish with sniper, fermenting casava and fufu with Ariel detergent.
This revelation was made during an unannounced visit by members of the Nigerian Food Sciences and Technology Institute paid to Utako and Garki markets in Abuja on June 12th.
“No wonder we now have NIGERIAN YOUTHS & KIDS suffering Organ failure & Cancer.” The scientist posted on Twitter.
“Yesterday, scientists under the umbrella of the Nigerian Food Sciences and Technology Institute went to inspect markets in Abuja (Utako and Garki Markets). The things we discovered are heartbreaking:
“People who fry akara, puff-puff, yam, meat, fish, etc., use transformer oil mixed with vegetables or groundnut oil to fry the stuff. Ariel detergent is used to ferment cassava for fufu, fish sellers spray sniper on dry fish to keep flies out.
“In our abbatoir, tyres and used plastics are used to roast slaughtered animals which are sold in the market. Please avoid food cooked outside your home if you can.”
We are veryyyyyyyyyy wicked to ourselves. We can see one of the reasons internal organ failure and CANCER have continued to increase even in young children and adults who live healthy still come down with all sorts of diseases."
NO… Buhari is the problem 🤷🏽♀️
