    Persistent Organic Pollutants” (POPs) are chemical contaminants identified by scientist at World War (II). These contaminants found their way into the environment as result of human activities such as agriculture, industrialization and transportation. They are persistent and can travel long range in the atmosphere to regions where they have never been used or produced, posing serious health effects on humans, wildlife and aquatic environments. This research has identified some of these pollutants in soil and water samples obtained from four different locations from a community within Kaltungo known as Dogon Ruwa. The samples were analyzed for the presence of these pesticides pollutants. QuECHERS method was adopted for the extraction and cleans up, and Gas Chromatography coupled with mass selective detector known as Mass Spectrometer was used for detection. Pesticides of interest..
