(local reports)

Nigeria- A wave of deadly infections has hit the town of Irele in Ondo state, killing over 15 already. According to reports, victims wake up blind and die hours later.

Here are three top conspiracies about the cause of the disease.

It’s The CIA

Some people believe the CIA introduced the ‘disease’ into Nigeria through international election observers. Since America couldn’t get Nigeria with Ebola, it introduced a more bastard disease that the country can’t handle like it handled Ebola, they say.


Food Poisoning

Since all the victims are adults, some people believe the disease was caused by poisoning, through mixing industrial ethanol with local gin. All local gin joints should be investigated, they added.

Enraged Deity

This is the dominant rumor concerning the cause of the mysterious deaths.

It is believed that a powerful deity in the area, the ‘Imale’, killed a man and his dead body was deposited at the shrine. However, some young boys went there to cut the head of the dead body and took one of the idols away. As a result, The 'imale' has been killing the boys one after the other.

In another version of the story, the boys stole the idols of an unnamed potent deity and sold to some white men. Those that pertook in act (theft and sale) are dying mysteriously. It’s said that some of those involved have started confessing.

Sounds like bad booze but could be food poisoning. They do things a little differently there and usually know how to process
food quickly without refrigeration. Lots of what we call micro breweries exist and possibly some bacteria beside the yeast gained
dominance in a batch.

Latest I could find - weed killer.

Geneva (AFP) - Pesticide poisoning was the likely cause of the mysterious deaths of at least 18 people in a southwestern Nigerian town earlier this week, the World Health Organization said Sunday.

The "current hypothesis is cause of the event is herbicides", WHO spokesman Gregory Hartl said in a tweet.

"Tests done so far are negative for viral and bacterial infection," he added.

The victims began showing symptoms early last week in what Ondo state spokesman Kayode Akinmade called a "mysterious disease", prompting fears of a new infectious disease outbreak in a region ravaged by Ebola.

Makes sense, no new cases, limited (23) number of dead, all within a day or two.

I'll post up any final 'results'. No - NOT a new super-duper ebola-like killer....

Wow, Joker, 7 spelling errors in a single sentence may be a new record.

2.) Proofread before posting.
If it’s important enough for you to post it, you probably want us to understand it. This means using proper spelling, good grammar, punctuation, and capitals if it helps with clarity. Typos happen, but full paragraphs of misspelled words with no punctuation are difficult to read and won’t be taken seriously (if anyone bothers to read them).
