Two persons have been confirmed dead from suspected food poisoning at a wedding in Mani, Katsina State.
The State Police command’s spokesman, SP Gambo Isah, said: “On April 4, 2020, the Divisional Police Officer (DPO), Mani Division, received a complaint that one Musa Suleiman, 25, conspired with one Shafa’atu Sirajo, 20, and administered a noxious substance, popularly known as “Zaqami” in the food that was served to the guests in a wedding.
Consequently, 19 persons that ate the food fell sick and became unconscious. The DPO and his team rushed the victims to Mani General Hospital for medical treatment.”
