Ingest farm fertilizer? This idea seems unbelievable but residents of Yagoua in the Far North are doing so. Indeed, on June 11, 2019, the prefect of the region published an official communique to warn of such fact.
In the communique, he indicates that he has heard that some producers use farm fertilizers in the production of potassium. He adds that the origin of the real diseases affecting an increasing number of Yagoua population can find its roots in the use of farm fertilizers for the production of this edible product.
He called the population for caution when buying the product and warned producers that use of farm fertilizer in the production process. “Anybody who will be found guilty of mixing farm fertilizer with potassium will be severely punished according to the rules in force,” he wrote in the communiqué.
