Sapele Kpomo Sellers Pumping Kpomo Fat With Embalming Fluid?

Hello Aunty Eya, please inform your Sapele readers that some kpomo sellers were arrested for injecting their kpomo with embalming fluid before soaking in water to make the kpomo look
big and fluffy. They confessed to Health officers at Sapele, Delta State. For lovers of fat kpomo, be careful!!!

    OMG na wa o, goodbye to eating kpomo even as I'm in abj

  2. Chai, how are we sure this is happening in Sapele alone? Even if it was, with this news now? application of embalming fluid may just go viral.

    I remember when my family stopped eating frozen chicken cos we heard they were preserved with embalming fluid. When I coukdn't verify the story, we started eating again, now this. Dead body injection?

    What is vegetable soup without kpomo? Me I like that soft fat one eh,What can one use in place of kpomoooooooo?

    Dear food stuff sellers in Naija. Money is not everything. Life comes first. If everyone gets poisoned and dies, who will now buy your goods? Almost everything is adulterated. What can one do now?

    Cow head. Good alternative to kpomo and juicier

  7. I wasn't really surprised to read this...we are in Nigeria afterall.

    After one week everybody will goes on and so does ponmo consumption. A good substitute like someone wrote above is cowleg (bokoto) and also the skinny brown ponmo.

  8. Shuoo na so e don reash for una. I sure say most of these one way kpomo sellers for this our Igbudu market dey use am.
    Next time I go waka enter Igbo line go meet my brothers for cowleg instead of poison, tufiakwa...what people do for perishable paper

  9. haba na! so we cant eat kpomo harmlessly again....i will soon be a vegetarian

  10. On an unrelated point Eya. Why do the women sit like men with legs wide open. I see this often.

    1. They feel the wrapper has covered everything from public view. Lol

  13. Distributing illness for mere chicken change called extra gain. The Lord wil cont to save us in nigeria.
