A consultant obstetrician and   gnaecologist, Dr Madziga Isa,  on Monday advised Nigerians to suspend the eating of roasted meat, locally known as Suya, to guard against contracting Ebola virus.

Isa, of NNPC Staff Clinic, also said Nigerians should avoid  fish and bush meat, as well as wash their hands regularly as a part of precautionary measures against infection.

He made the call in Kaduna during a public awareness lecture  with the theme “Ebola: Deadly, Untreatable but  Preventable”, organised by the Kaduna Refining and  Petrochemical Company (KRPC).

The consultant urged the populace to reduce their contacts with people, avoid unsafe sex and dispose of the dead with utmost caution.

“Do not use your hands to carry dead animals, make sure you  wear gloves or use stick to carry them  and always use bleach in your household to disinfect,” he added.
