Strange disease hit Ondo community, kills 14 by Idowu Olabode : April 16, 2015, 12:44:34 PM
The ancient Ikale community in Irele local government area of Ondo state has been hit by a mysterious disease, killing at least 14 people.

DAILY POST gathered that the disease has been ravaging the community since the past 10 days.

According to Mr. Taiwo Erukusi, an indigene of the community, residents of the community are now in confusion as majority of the people are scared of touching the deceased to avoid being infected.

Our correspondent learnt that the said ailment is more deadly than the ebola virus as it will first blind the victim while also drawing out his tongue.

“We are worried. Our people are dying. We don’t know this sickness. We are just done with elections and it’s now this disease.Have we offended God? If we have, then we are seek forgiveness. God should forgive us. We can’t touch those who have been killed. I have counted about 19, others said 14. God please, have mercy on us”. One of the residents, Mrs. Mary Omogbehinla pleaded.

However, the state Commissioner for Health, Dr. Dayo Adeyanju said the disease was a strange ailment, and the symptom include headache and loss of weight.He informed that local and international health institutions were already carrying out investigation on the possible cause of the ailment and its treatment.
