In an audio message, made available to newsmen in Kano on Thursday, Commissioner of Health of the state, Aminu Ibrahim Tsanyawa, revealed that no fewer than 10 persons died, as 400 still on admission in hospitals following complications that arose from consumption of the killer drinks in the state.
Tsanyawa added that out of the 400 people being hospitalized, over 50 are currently undergoing kidney-related treatment in government hospitals.
