Residents of Kano have explained the increase in deaths recorded in the city in the last three days.
Also some of the relatives of those who died attributed their deaths to a malaria-related ailment.
One of the residents and community leader, Alhaji Jafaru Gwarzo, in an interview with The PUNCH, said, “Most of the places that have recorded a high number of deaths are densely populated areas. So anybody that dies people will take the corpse to a nearby cemetery for burial due to the lockdown.
“So based on our findings, Abattoir cemetery in Fagge area recorded the highest number of burials because it is near densely populated areas like Gwammaja, Yola, and Kulkul.”
Another resident, Mallam Musa Maiyara, said the number of deaths recorded in the last three days in the metropolis was alarming.
