Abstract: Cyanide is a group of compounds which contains a C≡N group: one atom of carbon linked with one atom of nitrogen by three molecular bounds. The cyanide component of cassava mill effluent is highly toxic to man and its environment. Presence of cyanide resulting from the discharge of untreated CME into soil could prevent oxidation/reduction process in non-resistant microbes, thereby leading to decline in productivity probably due to the effect on soil microorganisms. One mill of the soil sample was introduced into a sterile petri dish and Nutrient Agar was also introduced inside the petri dish and placed in an incubator for 24 hours for the bacterial count. The microbial isolates were Proteus mirabilis, Proteus vulgaris, Staphylococcus saprophyticus, Bacillus spp, Klebsiella, Streptococcus, Pseudomonas spp, Acinetobacter, Burkhoderia, Proteus mirabilis, Proteus vulgaris, Pseudomonas spp Staphylococcus saprophyticus, Bacillus spp, Klebsiella, Streptococcus, The microbial isolates gotten from sample A and B tends to survive in high concentration of cyanide content in cassava effluents and are good in detoxifying the cyanide content which seems to be a pollutant to the environment and harmful substance to the plants.
