A man from the Bokkos local government area of Plateau State, who boasted that he can take nine bottles of locally brew alcoholic drink “Ogogoro” without getting intoxicated, has died after carrying out his boast.
Hafsat Abubakar, of the Conflict Mediation Mitigation Regional Council (CMMRC) Plateau Chapter, said the unidentified man had requested the seller of the local gin to give him 11 bottles and swore that he would finish it without anything untoward happening.
Abubakar told The Nation that the man succeeded in gulping nine bottles but could not finish the remaining two.
The man immediately gave up the ghost while the seller packed up her wares and took to her heels.
Before the man died, he was vomiting blood profusely from the nose, ears and mouth.
The source hinted that a hunter who was passing by was shocked at the sight of the dead man and alerted the villagers who took him for burial.
The deceased was said to have a wife and five children.
