Tragedy struck recently when five persons consumed what appears to be adulterated locally brewed gin called “ogogoro” with two lives lost and the other three hospitalized.
It happened at Ibie clan in Etsako West LGA in Edo State, South-south Nigeria.
According to eye witnesses, the five persons began experiencing severe abdominal pain soon after consuming the said gin and were taken to hospital where two have so far died. In 2015 several episodes happened in Ondo State, South-west Nigeria and Bayelsa State, South-south Nigeria. It later traced to the industrial ethanol used in the preparation of the gin.
