In what sources called Ebola prevention gone wrong, 2 people have lost their lives after drinking and bathing with hot concentrated salt solution in Makurdi, the capital city of Benue State Nigeria.

Hear what the DG of Public Health in the state, Dr Joseph Kumba said about the deaths:

“We got the report at a meeting today (yesterday) that two persons died at Ushakaa clinic as a result of drinking and bathing with hot salted water,”.

“We did everything possible to help the victims but to no avail. One of them died on Tuesday at 7pm while the other gave up the ghost at 5am Wednesday (yesterday).

My people make una take it easy o. I hear Bitter Kola is also scarce in town now as our people are chopping it like crazy to avoid Ebola infection.

Ah Nigeria, May God help us.

May the souls of the departed rest in peace.
