The Lagos State Government has confiscated a truckload of “Ebola Ponmo” at Ijegun, a suburb of Lagos in the Alimosho Local Government area of the State, imported into the country by some unscrupulous individuals.

Permanent Secretary, Lagos State Ministry of Agriculture, Dr. Olayiwole Onasanya, who disclosed this in Lagos on Monday, in a statement, said the Police in Ikotun area of the State made the arrest of a vehicle fully loaded with cowhide, otherwise known as “ponmo”, and subsequently informed officials of the State Government.

He pointed out that the cowhide preserved with certain chemicals for the purpose of being used as leather material are being sold for human consumption by some criminals prior to their arrest by the Police and subsequent confiscation by the State Government.


The Permanent Secretary noted that the confiscated “Ebola ponmo”, suspected to contain substances that could spread the Ebola virus, has since been transported to the Ministry’s outstation at Johnson Agiri Office Complex, Agege for onward disposal at the medical waste dumpsite in Ewu Elepe, Ikorodu area of the State.
