From Across Nigeria
Lovers and notorious consumers of a popular local gin, known as “Ogogoro” have been warned against its consumption for this period in Irele and environs following the death of about 20 persons mysteriously in the town.
Dr Dayo Adeyanju,Ondo state Commissioner for Health,gave the warning while briefing reporters on updates about the mysterious disease and government actions to date.
Adeyanju said the warning became necessary in view of the notoriety of the people of the southern senatorial zone of the state in the consumption of illicit gin and reports that the deceased victims had prior to their death consumed large quantity of the gin also known as ”404′,.
He based the government sensitisation and warning on suggestion that the victims may have died as a result of methanol poisoning.
The strange disease starts with headache,blindness and leads to death.
