Agbo is either soaked in palm wine, alcohol, or water before taken, and according to medical experts, with reports from Guardian Nigeria, the side effects of taking Agbo, is that it can damage the Kidney and the Liver. The major fear comes from the fact that, no one knows how it was prepared, how it was handled, what was used to prepare it, the dosage, the shelf life and the expiry date.
