The Kogi House of Assembly has called on the State and Federal Ministries of Health to unravel the cause of the strange disease which has killed 50 persons in the Olamaboro Local Government Area of the state. 

The House made the call at Tuesday’s plenary sitting in Lokoja following adoption of a motion on Urgent Public Importance, raised by Anthony Ujah over the strange illness that has claimed over 50 lives.

According to the lawmaker, the unknown disease comes with symptoms such as headache, red eyes, loss of appetite, inability to urinate or defecate, convulsion and death. 

Ujah said that the residents of Etteh Community in the local government area have been thrown into confusion by the outbreak of the alien disease. 

Supporting the motion, Deputy Speaker, Ahmed Mohammed, submitted that the community shares a boundary with Enugu State where similar incidence was earlier reported and efforts should be made to urgently avert further loss of lives.
