Sokoto State health commissioner, Ali Inname, confirmed that the family mistakenly used fertilizer chemical popularly called ” Gishirin Lalle in Hausa” as a seasoning in domestic family cooking instead of table salt.

He said medical personnel tried to save the victims’ lives without success.

“Regrettably, the entire family who ate the meal lost their lives, except two female members, who merely tasted the food and are currently responding to treatment, with very good chances of survival,” Inname said.

“Attempts to save the lives of all the affected people by providing the needed medical care proved abortive.”

He disclosed that two members of the family who only tasted the food are now receiving treatment in a hospital.

Inname advised people to always separate storage sites for food items from other agricultural and cosmetic items, and to carefully check all ingredients and foodstuff before use.

Inname said it was very important for the public to know that the fatalities were preventable.

He said food stores should be secured to prevent access to flies, while cooked food and water sources should be secured.

The commissioner urged residents to “report to a health facility or isolation camp in your area early when you observe any unusual symptoms or unusual condition.”
