ABSTRACT: Abattoir waste discharged on soil is of great concern to the environmentalists. It has been adjudged to have negative impact on soil medium; hence the study analyzes the abattoir soil in Yenagoa metropolis.  The study made use of descriptive normative survey. Soil samples were taken from two different abattoir sites and a control site to assess the physico-chemical properties and heavy metal parameters of the soil. The soil parameter was determined using conventional analytical technique.  The soil pH (µS/cm) was found to be ranging from 4.61-6.24(µS/cm) for Swali study area and 6.35-5.88(µS/cm) for Etegwe study area. Electrical conductivity for Swali varied from 148.30 to 132.42(µS/cm) whereas for Etegwe it range from 99.40 to 162(µS/cm). Sulphate, nitrate, chloride and phosphate recorded 18. 70 mg/kg, 2.842 mg/kg, 62.00 mg/kg and 1.35 mg/kg, respectively and control site of 24.88 mg/kg, 0.37mg/kg, 21.80 mg/kg and 0.38 mg/kg, respectively in Swali while Etegwe abattoir site recorded the value for Sulphate, nitrate, chloride and phosphate as 24.65mg/kg, 3.73mg/kg,73.84mg/kg and 2.38mg/kg respectively and control site of 28.72 mg/kg, 2.18mg/kg , 42.70 mg/kg , and 0.54 mg/kg respectively. They were all within the WHO permissible limit for soil standards except electrical conductivity (ED) level of Swali abattoir study area with 148 (µS/cm)  which above WHO permissible limits.  The findings revealed that despite increasing abattoir activity in the study area, heavy metal levels in soils were typically low when compared to FEPA permissible limits. Zinc (Zn), Chromium (Cr), Copper (Cu), and Iron (Fe), 3.217mg/kg, 0.115mg/kg, 0.267mg/kg and 1.267mg/kg respectively in Swali sampled abattoir soil and 0.694mg/kg, 0.017mg/kg, 0.045mg/kg and 2.229mg/kg respectively in Etegwe sampled abattoir soil, showed negligible value. The study recommends that abattoirs should be properly designed with modern technologies that will incorporate adequate and comprehensive waste management techniques, the stakeholders should endeavor to be organizing on an annual basis, workshops and services and conferences on waste management for the operators of abattoirs in the area.
