The Kano State Consumer Protection Council (CPC) has closed two restaurants after some of their employees were diagnosed with liver disease.
The acting chairman of the commission, Dr Baffa Babba Dan’agundi, made this known in a statement signed by the council’s public relations officer, Musbahu Aminu Yakasai, through the special assistant to the Governor of Kano State on KAROTA, Nasiru Usman Na’ibawa during the closure.
According to Nasiru Usman, the affected restaurants include ‘Down Town’ on Bompai Street and Alkhairi Suya on Maiduguri Road in Kano.
Zalica said one patient in Down Town and six people in Alkhairi Suya were diagnosed with the disease after they were taken to hospital for tests, indicating that they were showing signs of the disease.
Nasiru Na’ibawa added that measures had been taken to close down the restaurants to prevent the spread of the disease among customers who patronize the restaurants.
