Abstract: Petroleum hydrocarbon is one of the most alarming pollutants due to their high toxicity to human and environmental health. The utilization of organic and inorganic nutrients to enhance the cleanup of soil contaminated with hydrocarbon has been investigated and this justifies this study. Hence the aim of this study is to ascertain the effectiveness of microbial culture in combination with the organic and inorganic amendment as a means to curtail this challenge. However a total of eight (8) hydrocarbon utilizing bacterial were isolated from both polluted and unpolluted soil samples. These isolates were identified based on their macroscopic, microscopic and biochemical characteristics. They were identified as Acinetobacter ,Escherichi coli, Pseudomonas species, Bacillus, Staphylococcus, Rhodococcus, and Micrococcus species respectively. Physicochemical parameters were done on the polluted and control samples and they include; pH, conductivity, organic carbon, potassium, sodium, calcium, magnesium, nitrate, phosphate, sulphate, cation exchange capacity. The total petroleum hydrocarbon for the polluted samples and control sample were 59.80mg/kg and 25.10mg/kg and 0.007 respectively. Heavy metals analysis for lead and arsenic was recorded as 0.001mg/kg 0.092mg/kg and 0.013mg/kg and 0.0013 for control nevertheless they were all beyond detectable limit, The effect of the treatment was analyzed by monitoring the TPH levels of the polluted samples within a 28day period. The data obtained from the study shows that using a consortium of microbial culture of organic and inorganic amendments has a drastic reduction of the total petroleum hydrocarbon (TPH) levels in the polluted soil sample.
