10 teachers die

 

Ten secondary school teachers are reported to have died of food poisoning, and several others hospitalised in Katsina.

Investigations by the News Agency of Nigeria showed that the incident occurred at the weekend at a workshop organised by the state Ministry of Education for some 650 teachers at Government Day Secondary School, Kofar Yan’daka, Katsina.

It was gathered that soon after taking their lunch, supplied by a popular corporate caterer on the fateful day, some of the teachers were vomiting and afflicted by diarrhoea, as a result of which they were rushed to the Federal Medical Centre, Katsina and the Police Clinic for medication.

Ten of the affected teachers were said to have died as a result of the infection.

When contacted, the Permanent Secretary in the ministry of education, Alhaji Khalil Musa, said, “I cannot comment on the issue now, because it has yet to be reported to the state government. I don’t want to pre-empt the government on the issue.’’

The state Police Public Relations Officer, Abubakar Ibrahim, who confirmed the incident, said only one teacher died, while 19 others were hospitalised.
