I started having stomach pain I was in the toilet all through before I was admitted to the hospital this was prepared by my wife if it was somebody else I probably think I was being poisoned Fayemi said”. 
A food vendor from Asaba Delta state Mama Ejiro lamented 
“today na bad market for me o after 5 of my customers eat beans finish for my restaurant he nor reach two hours they come one after the other say me poison dem; I say me poison? God forbid! as we dey talk one come with police say na dey woman be this wey poison me

A report from Dr Charles Egwu said 
“I’m a Medical doctor and I confirmed this my self, my wife called me to the kitchen and said she had par-boiled this beans like three times the kind of toxic foams evaporating from the beans as she was filtering it I became worried I told her we can’t eat this, so I took the water from the filtered beans to the lab and later 
I confirmed that this beans was preserved with different toxic chemicals which will eventually bring health complications. So I believe (NAFDAC) is doing a great job but they should follow-up with the way farmers preserve food produce for the safety of Nigerians it’s terrible, he said”.
