A video has emerged on social media in which a Nigerian man could be seen pouring detergent inside tiger nuts that will be sold to customers.

In the video that was shared on Facebook by Ayo Ojeniyi, the man mixed the detergent with water and poured it inside a sack with the nut to make them look fresh.

Sharing the video, Ayo wrote:

"Just watched out for what you eat. Better still wash your fruits thoroughly. This is terrible. The guy wanted his tiger nuts to look fresh. But what of the health danger of his customers???"

As a woman captured the moment and interrogated him, the man looked unbothered and continued with what he was doing.

The woman said the mallam sells his tubers under a tree opposite Island Club in Lagos.

Nigerians react to the development

@Tasleem Bidmus said:

"Whatever that you don't prepare YOURSELF, is NOT safe. Even under popular eateries A/C. A man working with one of the popular eatery business outfit was once cut with CCTV camera. Can you imagine what he did? He poured phlegm in a meat pie..... Can you imagine that? And a customer will eat that with relish and excitement still asking for more...

"Things happen..... Trust what you prepared yourself. Whatever we eat outside and wherever, no matter how well packaged are RISKY. May Allaah continue to protect us."

Olasunkanmi Okanbi Olusokan commented:

"Honestly I don't like to buy anything to eat or drink from any Aboki.we have seen a lot."

Lekan Bright-Kolade commented:

"In their efforts to make the edible items attractive, they use water from drainage, spray dangerous chemicals and unethical steps to ensure this. They need to be given periodical tutoring and enlightenment. They're not bothered whether what they're doing is capable of killing or not."
