    Abstract: The study was to identify the source and evaluate the health risk of heavy metals in contaminated agricultural soil from Egi community (Oboburu, Obagi and Ogbogu), Niger Delta, Nigeria. Multivariate and health risk equations were employed to achieve this. The mean of heavy metals in samples of Oboburu indicated high levels for Fe (271.0±156.6 mg/kg... Show More
