POULTRY PRODUCELagosians have been warned to beware of the dangers of buying and consuming contaminated poultry produce like chicken and turkey, currently on sale in different parts of Lagos State.

The Lagos State Government, which gave the warning at the weekend, alleged that the contaminated poultry produce were exhumed by unscrupulous persons after they were seized and destroyed by officials of the Nigeria Customs Service in Badagry.

The Commission­er for Agriculture in Lagos State, Mr. To­yin Suarau, who disclosed this while receiving offi­cials of the National Orien­tation Agency (NOA), who came on the directive of the Federal Government to ap­peal for support on how to sensitise Lagosians on the danger posed by this act, noted that these exhumed poultry produce are poi­sonous and could result in the death of those who consumed it.

“This visit by officials of National Orientation Agency was based on the circular received by the agency about the recently exhumed contaminated poultry produce being de­stroyed by officials of the Nigeria Customs Service somewhere in Badagry.

“The need for sensiti­sation on the dangers as­sociated with consuming these exhumed poisonous poultry produce cannot be over-emphasized especially in view of the havoc it pos­es to the public”, Sarau noted.

The commissioner explained that the imported poultry produce, which were pre­served with chemicals like formaldehyde, which is poison­ous, could lead to slow death of the consumer without their knowledge.
