Benue State Government Suspends Eating Of Rats Over Lassa Fever

Benue State Government has directed its citizens to stop the eating of rats in the meantime in order to curtail the spread of Lassa fever.

The state governor, Samuel Ortom, disclosed this to Newsmen shortly after meeting Vice President Yemi Osinbajo at the Presidential Villa, Abuja.

Governor Ortom said the decision was taken because the state had recorded a case of the fever.

According to report, rat is a delicacy popular among the people of the state.

Governor Ortom said he decided to make agriculture a priority programme of his administration because he suspected early enough that a time would come when the nation would face revenue generation challenges.
