Panic as strange disease kills 50 in JigawaThere is confusion in Gidan Dugus, under Wangara District of Dutse local Government Area of Jigawa State, following the death of about 50 children.

According to the confused community, the children reportedly died of a “strange disease.’’

The disease was reportedly first noticed in July but the community did not report it until October 28.

It was gathered that the people preferred self medicate than go to hospital for treatment.

One of the parents, Haladu Usman, who lost seven children told newsmen that, “Within 14 days, I lost seven of my children, 3 boys and 4 girls. The children died one after the other.”

Another parent, Salisu Abdullahi said he lost four of his children in one week, despite several efforts in securing medication from nearby clinics.

He said: “I was dead scared by this unknown sickness which consumed the lives of our innocent children. We have intensified our daily prayers for Allah to protect this community.”

Ward head of Gidan Dugus, Mallam Umar Dahiru, said the community lived in fear and agony over a disease illness, which he described as a catastrophe.
