I.A. Okoro, C.I. Oriaku and E.N. Ejike    

Abstract: Concentrations of lead in street dust in selected cities of Aba, Abakaliki, Enugu and Onitsha were determined. The results showed the overall mean lead concentrations for five streets in each of the four Cities selected for the study; Aba (345.99427.12 mg kg 1), Abakaliki (162.15416.24 mg kg 1), Enugu (322.50824.43 mg kg 1) and Onitsha (291.97834.34 mg kg 1).
