These maladies are regular among grown-ups, youth and kids in some provincial networks in Biu Volcanic Province North-Eastern Nigeria. This is the thing that propelled the Authors to explore the convergence of arsenic in surface and ground waters of Biu volcanic condition, northern eastern Nigeria and to portray regions of high hazard to arsenic introduction. Thirty-seven water tests; thirteen surface water tests and twenty-four ground water tests were dissected utilizing Inductively Coupled Plasma Optical Emission Spectrometry (ICP-OES) at Geochemistry Laboratory, University of Jos, Nigeria. Arsenic fixations go from 0.03 to 0.477 mg/L in the surface water and 0.006 to 0.424 mg/L in the ground water. This investigation demonstrates that individuals in Yimirshika Village may be at a significant danger of arsenic harming
