ABSTRACT

 The level of heavy metals (Cd, Hg, Ni, Zn, Cu, and Pb) in soils and cassava plant from farm land around the dumpsite was detennined using digestion and Atomic 'Absorption Spectrophotometer (AAS). Soil samples were collected at the depth of 0-15cm and 15-30cm from the dumpsite and other samples were collected at the tlepth of 0-15cm and 15-30cm from an area where there is no dumpsite do serve as -,:control . Plant samples ( cassava tuber) were as well collected from the dumpsite and from an area far from the dumpsite to serve as control. The mean concentration bf heavy metals in the soil of the dumpsite was higher than that of the soil of the 'control but was lower than that of the pennissible limits of European (EU, 2002). I The concentration of heavy metals in the plant of the dumpsite was higher than that [of the control and the concentration of (10.52mg/kg) Pb and Ni (9.3mg/kg) in the [plant of the dumpsite was higher than the pennissible limit ofWHO/FAO (2007), land this calls for the remediation of such an area since the inhabitants depend on this area for farming.
