A “strange disease” has killed eleven persons in Bonny Local Government Area of Rivers State.

A tweep, Dr. Olufunmilayo disclosed this on her Twitter handle, @DrOlufunmilayo, on Monday.

According to Dr. Olufunmilayo ,  officials of the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC)  have been deployed there “to do tests and find out what may be going on”.

“If you, or your loved one, is in this area; please be alert and take all necessary precautions,” she advised.
