  1. the outbreak is as a result of the environmental degredation in Otukpo LGA, the local government is dirty and the government officials are doing nothing to right this wrong. many companies approched the local government to provide them the services of cleaning the local govt., clear the drainages, and sweep the major streets in Otukpo.

    The local government official must stand up to this challenge.
