A lifeless body of a yet-to-be identified dead man was found under Kofar Nasarawa Bridge, in Kano State.
The deceased who was said to be in his late sixties suddenly collapsed to the ground and dying immediately on Tuesday, sparking fear among residents as they scamper for safety.
Some residents told SaharaReporters that hours after calls were put across to security and health agencies, they had refused to show up to evacuate the corpse.
“We are now restless, we don’t know what killed him, we just found his body lying on the ground.
“We have called the Ministry of Health and police, since afternoon no response, the body has started swelling,” a resident said.
It was observed that the headquarters of the Kano State Fire Service was less than 100 meters from where the incident occurred.
KanyiDaily had reported that over 600 persons died of a strange ailment in the past few weeks in Kano, raising deep concerns among residents who are now desperate for urgent intervention.
