Many dead, 500 hospitalised after drinking juice in Kano

Speaking in a video, which was made available to newsmen in Kano State Thursday, the Commissioner explained that the affected persons are being treated in government hospitals.

He cautioned residents on consumption of juice during the period of Ramadan, to avoid catastrophic consequences.
