Abstract: The study was conducted to determine the level of metal contamination and access the spread of these metals in soils around some cassava processing plants in Oyo town. Cassava processing involves peeling off of the outer layers, crushing the cassava, compressing the crushed cassava under machine to drain off the effluents which could be a potential source of contamination to soil and underground water in the area. The location of the study falls within latitude 7o 15ˡ N and 7o 18ˡ N and longitude 3o 54ˡ E and 4o 00ˡ E
