Some species of fish, mostly Tilapia in the Epe Lagoon in Lagos State have been declared poisonous and as such unsafe for human consumption, BusinessDay can authoritatively report.

A special research on fishery organisms carried out by some researchers in aquaculture and fisheries, from the Institute of Food Security, Environmental Resources and Agricultural Research of the Federal University of Agriculture, Abeokuta (FUNAAB) showed that five species of fish usually caught in the Epe Lagoon and marketed in Lagos, Ogun and other parts of the country, are poisonous and injurious to human health.

The study carried out on mostly Tilapia from Epe Lagoon by some researchers and lecturers led by Iyabo Taiwo, a doctoral degree holder, indicated that heavy presence of metals, namely, manganese, iron, copper, zinc and lead in the Lagoon have contaminated the muscles and bones of the fish, making them unsafe for human consumption.

Some people need to be re-oriented on waste disposal. Someone said that if u take Nigerians to America, and bring Americans to Nigeria; giving these two countries 20yrs, America wud become Nigeria and vice versa. God help us!
