ponmo

The state commissioner for Agriculture, Ronke Sokefun raised alarm, while addressing stakeholders and ‘Ponmo’ sellers in her office in Abeokuta, over the discovery of poisonous cattle hide and skin otherwise known as ‘Ponmo’ in some markets in the state, warning the people against its consumption.

She said some unscrupulous businessmen were taking advantage of the gap in demand and supply of the soup ingredient popularly called ‘Ponmo’ to sell industrial ‘Ponmo’ laden with tanning chemicals to the unsuspecting public.

She explained how the toxic ‘Ponmo’ otherwise known as ‘imported ‘Ponmo’ can easily be identified in the market; it is often brownish black, foul smelling, abnormally thick with layers and ridiculously cheap  compared to the certified ‘Ponmo’, she said.

To all you lovers of ponmo, you have been warned!
