3 female students die of suspected food poisoning
Three secondary school girls of Mega Government Girls Comprehensive Secondary School, Kebbi State, may have died of food contaminated with poison.
The Principal of the school, Hajiya Lami Abubakar, made this known when she briefed the State Governor, Alhaji Atiku Bagudu, that the food consumed by the deceased students was not a school meal, but prepared from home by parents of one of the girls.
“The leaves of the food delicacy known in Hausa as (Rama) was taken to the school by the parents during the visiting hours, which might have been contaminated,” she said.
Abubakar further informed the governor that the meal was taken by the deceased students consecutively for three days running before they felt sick which led to their death after being hospitalised.
