Outbreaks of vomiting and diarrhea in Gwoza Local Government Area of Borno State have killed 35 people while 150 are said to have been hospitalized on Saturday and Sunday.

This was disclosed today (Monday) when the council Chairman, Professor Ibrahim Bulama, was calling on both the state and Federal Government to come to the aid of the people.

Professor Bulama, who was in attendance at the presentation of Demands of Border Communities in Borno State, a function at the Multi-purpose Hall, Government House in Maiduguri, said the council needs urgent assistance to curtail the spread of the disease.

Ten local governments in Borno State bordering the three countries of Chad, Niger and Cameroon while presenting the demand said they lack social amenities like electricity, clean water supply, motorable roads, health facilities, security protection and others.

Professor Ibrahim Bulama said that the security system at the borders should be strengthened because movement of foreign nationales into the state is alarming.

According to him “the easy movement is facilitated by the nature of the porous border which facilitates smuggling of arms and ammunition, hard drugs and other unwanted goods.”
