Two Arrested In Rivers With Substandard Ponmo From Madagascar by AprokoGirl: 6:43am On Apr 13
The Rivers State Government has intercepted a truckload of suspected substandard animal hide, popularly called ponmo, in Onne, Eleme Local Government Area of the state, even as two persons accompanying the truck were arrested.

The Commissioner for Agriculture, Dr Fred Kpakol, who confirmed the incident while speaking to journalists on Port Harcourt, said the import papers showed that the seized product came into the country from Madagascar.

Kpakol said the containerised truck, which conveyed the product, came through the Onne Port, adding that it was seized and taken to the police area command in Eleme for further investigation.

The commissioner explained that the arrest followed a tip-off and the ministry quickly swung into action with the help of the police, adding that the state police command would conduct a full-scale investigation into the incident.

Kpakol stated, “We got a tip-off that some canda meat that was imported found its way into the state. We went in and found out that it had come in from the Onne Port.

“It’s was a container full of canda meat. We were able to intercept it and took it to the area command. When it was opened, it was discovered that it was adulterated and stinking.

“From the import paper, we found out that it came in from Madagascar.”

Meanwhile, the Area Police Command said it had begun investigation into the incident.

The Police Area Commander, Martins Nwogu, stated that those arrested with the truck claimed that the consignment was owned by a man simply known as Alhaji and contained raw materials for the making shoes and bags.

When contacted, the police spokesman for the state, Nnamdi Omoni, said the command had yet to get the report, but promised to contact the Eleme Area Command and get back to our correspondent.

As of the time of filing this report, he had yet to get back to our correspondent.

There can never be peace until the whole of the south boycott beef products from the North. Forget Madagascar they mentioned Hausa/Fulani are planning underground to make sure they succeed in mauling the south cos they know 2023 won't be business as usual. I stumbled on group Facebook page from the North last week where they were congratulating the new chairman for women development from the North. In fact, these people are not willing to let the power go despite spending 8 unproductive years ruling. It's time for south to put up the thinking cap and reason about the way forward. Things can't continue this way. But our greedy politicians won't allow this and won't take note of these situations. Obaseki is getting to know the truth now.

They were arrested simply because they imported it and did not roger.

Most kpomo in Nigeria are more substandard. If you see kpomo prepared by mummy Bose, our yard woman you will hate kpomo for life. Funny thing is that after cooking with it, the sweetness no be here.

People commonly use Canda in South South and South East. Ponmo is commonly used in South West. It's apparent the writer doesn't live in the region. Even the Rivers State commissioner called it Canda.

If it was imported for making leather products, I don't see anything wrong with it. But if it was imported for human consumption, I understand it should not be stinking but saying it was adulterated got me confused.
Is it that it too soft , too hard, too thin or too thick

Re: Two Arrested In Rivers With Substandard Ponmo From Madagascar by Minjim: 7:03am On Apr 13
Nothing our brothers from the East will not import.
But we have to ask who let them bring it in.

I don't even like eating ponmo, I don't know why you people eat it.
It has not nutritional value.
Govt should ban eating of ponmo
