​Disease Outbreak Claims Two, 25 On Watchlist In Lagos


 An outbreak of cholera has reportedly claimed at least two lives, while 25 others are being treated in three local government areas Lagos State.

According to the Commissioner for Health, Dr Jide Idris, who was joined at a press conference briefing by the Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Steve Ayorinde, in Lagos yesterday said that the outbreak had been traced to the Somolu, Oshodi-Isolo, and Surulere local government areas.

He said, “Twenty-seven cases have been listed by our epidemiology/disease surveillance officers as of today, July 25, 2017. Two deaths were recorded from the 27 cases.”

“In Oshodi-Isolo LGA, two cases were recorded. One was managed at a private hospital and he is alive, while one died at home.  In Surulere LGA, 14 cases were reported and managed at Randle General Hospital. No death was recorded.”
Idris added that six cases were recorded in Somolu LGA, adding that one of the patients died.

He explained that while four were managed at the Somolu General Hospital, one was managed at a private hospital, while one patient died at home.

“The main suspected source of infection is the contamination of water sources with faecal matter from faulty septic tanks and soak-away, following the heavy rainfall in the state. Samples of well water have been collected and sent to the Lagos State Drug Quality Control Laboratory. We are still expecting the results.”

“The clinical manifestations of cholera are nausea, profuse diarrhoea, vomiting (in early stages of illness), fever, and leg cramp. Later presentations are dehydration, shock or coma.”
“The medical directors of our general hospitals have been placed on alert and fact sheets on cholera forwarded to both public and private hospitals. Our community health workers are in the communities to prevent the spread of the disease.”

“Chlorination of water supply has been intensified, awareness campaign is ongoing.”

He added that two other cases were managed at the Mainland Hospital with no death recorded, while three cases were managed at the Gbagada General Hospital.

The commissioner, therefore enjoined the people to use potable water, saying sanitation was critical in reducing the impact of cholera and other water-borne diseases.
The outbreak was reportedly due to the heavy rainfall being experienced, and the aftermath of flooding in the state.

Whitney Houston’s Daughter Bobbi Kristina Dead at 22

Whitney Houston and Bobby Brown’s daughter Bobbi
Kristina has died at the age of 22. She passed away
outside Atlanta in the hospice care facility where she’s
been since June 24 … when her family decided to take
her off all meds. As we first reported, a specialist had
told them there was no chance of recovery. The family
says Bobbi Kristina was surrounded by family and, “She
is finally at peace in the arms of God.” Bobbi Kristina
was found submerged in her bathtub on January 31,
and police believe she was underwater for anywhere
between 2 and 5 minutes. Paramedics were able to
resuscitate her, but she was in a medically induced
coma and placed on life support. Ultimately, Pat
Houston and Bobby — co-guardians for Bobbi Kristina —
had to make the decision to withdraw medications. It
was a rare moment of agreement for the Browns and
Houstons … who had battled about BK’s
condition throughout her hospitalization. TMZ broke the
story … the D.A. has been gearing up for a murder
case, and her boyfriend Nick Gordon would be their first
person of interest. Police said there were bruises on
Bobbi Kristina’s face and body after Gordon and a
friend, Max Lomas, found her in the tub. Of course,
Whitney died from a drug overdose in 2012 while sitting
in a bathtub at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.

Alhaji Gay is the number one trending topic in Nigeria
right now. His real name is Razak Adetunji Alaso and
before today, I’d never heard of him but apparently, he’s
popular within ‘Yahoo Yahoo’ circle in Lagos. They say
he was very popular for tracking ‘Yahoo’ boys for the
police and EFCC. Some say he was an EFCC/police
imposter.
He was killed yesterday at Agbado Ijaiye, in Lagos.
People in the know say there have been many attempts
on his life – he’s been stabbed and shot before but he
survived. Guess the people after him succeeded this
time. Sad! May his soul rest in peace, amen. See a
photo of his body after the cut *graphic photo – be
warned*

By Fire, By Force Suspected cultists murder Islamic cleric for refusing to buy them ‘Igbo’

A Muslim cleric has been killed by suspected cultists.

A 25-year-old Islamic cleric, Alfa Rahmon Alabi, has
been reportedly murdered in strange circumstances
» by hoodlums suspected to be cultists » because he
refused to buy Indian Hemp (Igbo), for them.
The incident which happened on Thursday, July 9, at
the Ayobo area of Lagos State, has thrown the
community into a frenzy and apprehension.
It was gathered that the Iseyin, Oyo State indigene,
was on his way to the Mosque to conduct the Tahajjud
(Night Prayer), when the hoodlums accosted him and
requested he bought marijuana for them, but he
refused, saying doing such against his Islamic faith,
abusing them in the process.
The apparently ‘stoned’ hoodlums reportedly became
angry and attacked him and in the process, stabbed
him with knives and bottles after dispossessing him of
his phones and money.
One of Alfa Rahmon’s friends narrated how the ugly
incident happened:
“Alfa was very popular around here and we all loved
him. He had nothing to do with cultism. In fact, he
served as the Muezzin (Islamic faithful who calls for
prayers), and also woke people up with songs every
morning for the Sahur, preparatory to the fasting.
On Thursday night, he said he was going for prayer.
When he got to Kaka Junction, the cult members
stopped him and told him to buy hemp for them.
He refused and said he was on his way to the mosque
for a prayer. He showed them his Quran as a proof.
Then the cultists said if he knew what was good for
him, he would buy the hemp because they were Eiye
members (cultists).
He replied them and said, ‘The Eiye (birds) I know, do
not live with humans, they stay in the forest’. They
became angry that he had the boldness to reply them.
They then collected his phones and stabbed him.”
A community leader, Demola Olota, said four of the six
cult members that perpetrated the crime had been
arrested by the police.
