The Director of Public Health, Enugu State, Dr Boniface Okolo, has cautioned Nigerians against the consumption of soaked garri to avoid contacting Lassa fever.

Okolo, who gave the warning in an interview with News Agency of Nigeria, on Saturday in Enugu, said the rats that caused the disease were mostly in contact with the Nigerian most popular staple food ‘garri,’. He added that it was necessary to discourage consumption of soaked garri since it did not require boiled water. Okolo noted that boiled water could go a long way to kill bacteria caused by pest or rodents in garri.
