62 people killed in Kogi by strange illness

Dr. Saka Audu,the Kogi state commissioner for Health has disclosed that no fewer than 62 people have been killed in kogi by a strange illness.

The Illness was initially thought to be Lassa Fever because it had few symptoms similar to Lassa Fever but it is apparently different.

The Commissioner reportedly said:

the worst hit community is Okoloke in Yagba West Local Government Area of the state. Other areas are Okunran and Isanlu-Esa – both villages in Yagba West LGA.  With over 60 people dead and Lassa fever ruled out as a cause, the government has taken samples of the disease and is hoping to identify the illness as quickly as possible to prevent more deaths
