According to the PM News report, a mother has lost the life of her nine year old daughter after applying sniper in her hair to treat lice infection in Rivers state.
The young girl was reported to have died at the Rivers State University Teaching Hospital. A pediatrician, Dr. Gloria Nwosu, made a disclosure of this while advising mothers against the harmful practices based on ignorance and self-medication.
Speaking with the Press in Port Harcourt, Dr. Gloria said that the woman had followed the advice of her hairstylist and put the sniper in the hair of her two daughters, aged nine and four years. While the nine year old girl convulsed for hours and died, the doctors were however able to save the life of the four year old.
