•Many Hospitalised

THERE was confusion on Wednesday June 3, 2015 at the Nadangoro area of Katsina metropolis as not less than 10 persons were feared dead and many others hospitalised after a wedding meal.

The incident is already causing panic among residents of the area, as most of the guests, who ate or drank at the ceremony, are being contacted by friends.

Many of the wedding attendants are now undergoing treatment in various hospitals in the town.

It was learned that most of the affected victims had complained of stomachache shortly after leaving the ceremony, while some died hours after being admitted in the hospitals.

A staff of Federal Medical Centre (FMC), who pleaded anonymity, said the hospital had received a number of cases relating to the incident.

“I think, from the information gathered so far, the case of some of the victims has to do with food poisoning,” the staff said.
