The Karaga District of the Northern Region continues to record increasing cases of deaths relating to snake bites by virtue of the fact that residents are mostly farmers according to health professionals in the area.

In view of this, the Deputy Minister of Energy in charge of Petroleum, Dr Adam Mohammed Amin Anta has responded timely to the needs of residents by providing 100 pieces of Anti-Snake venom to the Karaga Hospital.

At the commissioning of a Maternity Block for the hospital under the auspices of the Northern Development Authority (NDA), he observed that the gesture became imperative following the unavailability of the drug at the facility resulting in needless deaths.

The Member of Parliament (MP) for Karaga, Mr Alhassan Sualihu Dandaawa, has appealed to the National Disaster Management Organisation (NAMDO) to go to the aid of about 280 residents of Bagurugu in the Karaga District in the Northern Region whose houses were burnt during a conflict in the area.
