“So, when I got there, I saw my daughter and her husband lying speechless. I took the remains of the house help to her parents for burial and before I came back, my daughter and her husband had equally died. This morning (Tuesday), their two-year-old daughter that I was hoping would survive died,” she added.

A neighbour, Mrs Dominic Gloria, also shared how the family was found writhing in pain.

“We woke up on Saturday morning and found the family members struggling for life. We didn’t know what was wrong with them and they were immediately rushed to the 82 Division Army Hospital. Later that day, their maid died.

“After a series of tests, we learnt that the food they ate before they went to sleep on Friday night was contaminated with a poisonous substance. Unfortunately, all efforts to save them failed, as the man and his wife died on Saturday, and on Tuesday morning, their two-year-old daughter equally died,” Gloria added.

There are no specifics as to what constitutes a poisoned meal. In the case of this family, their sorghum flour was contaminated and it led to nine deaths.

Nine Family Members Die After Eating Poisoned Meal    

Nine members of a family in Jangeme village in Gusau Local Government Area of Zamfara State lost their lives after they ate a poisonous meal.

The food was reportedly prepared by their sister who came to visit.

Unknown to her, she reportedly prepared Tuwo with sorghum flour that was contaminated.

The nine family members who died as a result of the food poisoning were mostly children and the only surviving child is critically ill at Yariman Bakura Specialist Hospital in Gusau with doctors battling to fix a respirator on him to aid his breathing.

The mother of the children fainted when she heard the shocking news.

An uncle to the deceased, Abdullahi Bello, who confirmed the incident to Daily Trust, said that the children died after eating Tuwo prepared by their sister who was on a visit to the family house from her matrimonial home.

“When she came, she fetched grains from a local silo and then took it to the machine for grinding.  A rabbit being reared in the house died after eating the sorghum flour before she even started preparing Tuwo for the children.,” Bello narrated.

“No one noticed that the sorghum flour was contaminated even after the rabbit had died. She went ahead and cooked the food for the children. Few hours after taking the meal, one child lost his life.

“Then, we took the remaining children to a medical facility in Gusau where two of them also died. We took the remains of those who died back home. When we were burying them at a cemetery in the community, we received a call that three had also died, including my younger sister that cooked the food for them. In totality, eight children and a mother lost their lives to the incident.

“The parents of the children who were not around when the tragedy struck the family are still battling to come to terms with what would have led to the death of their children. Their mother was also admitted after she was hit by the shock of the tragedy. The whole house has apparently become empty with only the biological parents of the children standing,” he said.

“Yes, the doctors had confirmed that the ailment originated after taking the last meal that day,” the Public Relations Officer of the hospital, Awwal Usman Ruwan Dorawa told Daily Trust.
