‪Speaking on the incident, a resident of the area called on President Muhammadu Buhari to intervene. 

“We need the intervention of the FG on the current situation in Gombe State.

“The lives of innocent citizens are at risk as these patients have been out of control and have been mingling with the public which will do more harm than good.

“We need an urgent solution on this matter please.”
