Lagos State Commission­er for Agriculture, Mr. To­yin Suarau has warned residents over the danger of buying and consuming ex­humed contaminated poul­try produce like chicken and turkey meat presently in circulation in the state.

The commissioner 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 were pre­served with chemicals like formalin which is poison­ous and could lead to slow death if consumed.
