This study was carried out to evaluate the efficiency of metals (Pb, Cd and Co) removal from oil spill water using the soursop (Annonamuricata) peels as adsorbent. Batch adsorption experiment was conducted as a function of pH, contact time, adsorbent dosage and particle size. Optimum pH of removal obtained for Pb, Cd and Co ions were 6, 6 and 4 respectively. The kinetic data obtained in this study fitted well to pseudo-second order model. This study showed that soursop peels is a potential biosorbent for the removal of Pb, Cd and Co ions from oil spill water, thus providing a cheap way of safeguarding human health, aquatic lives and soil fertility.
