The death has occurred of five students of Kanta Unity College, Argungu, Kebbi State, following the outbreak of a mysterious ailment.

One of the students who spoke with grapevine on the condition of anonymity said, “We believe that the death of our colleagues is an attack by evil spirits. We were cleaning our school environment recently when we heard a strange voice in the fire we set to rubbish, telling us to be ready to face the music for what the strange voice called ‘intruding into their vicinity’,’’ he said.

The student further explained that since then, students began to fall sick in mysterious circumstances with blood gushing out of their mouths and noses, leading to their death.

Meanwhile, the Kebbi State Government has directed temporary closure of the school to enable the government arrange for medical personnel to ascertain the cause of the outbreak and that the school would also be renovated during the period.

A statement by the Chief Press Secretary to the state governor, Alhaji Abubakar Muazu Dakingari, made available to grapevine, quoted the state Commissioner of Education as saying the state government had concluded all arrangements to transport students on exchange programme back to their respective states.
