Deadly Disease Alert In Nigeria

The ancient Ikale community in Irele local government area of Ondo state, Nigeria has been hit by a mysterious disease, which has killed at least 14 people.

According to the Daily Post, the disease has been ravaging the community for about 10 days. The ailment is said to be more deadly than the Ebola virus as it first blinds the victim while also drawing out the tongue before killing the victim hours later.

Mr. Taiwo Erukusi, an indigene of the community said, residents of the community are now in confusion as majority of the people are scared of touching the deceased to avoid being infected.

However, the state Commissioner for Health, Dr. Dayo Adeyanju said the disease was a strange ailment, and the symptom include headache and loss of weight.

He informed that local and international health institutions were already carrying out investigation on the possible cause of the ailment and its treatment.
