Serological prevalence of contagious bovine pleuropneumonia in agro-pastoral areas of Nigeria
TLDR
Although eradication is more likely to be achieved through regional approaches, enhanced vaccination coverage supported with targeted surveillance and a trace back system based on cattle trade and movement records will sustain effective control of the disease in the Nigerian cattle population.
METHICILLIN-RESISTANT STAPHYLOCOCCUS AUREUS (MRSA) IN FRESH AND FERMENTED MILK IN ZARIA AND KADUNA, NIGERIA

A decrease in the prevalence was observed from raw milk to the final yogurt and ‘kindirmo’ products indicating that pasteurization and fermentation eliminated the organisms.
Occurrence and antibiotic resistance profile of Listeria monocytogenes in salad vegetables and vegetable salads sold in Zaria, Nigeria

TLDR
To determine the susceptibility of the organisms to commonly used antimicrobial agents and to determine the presence of haemolysin A (hyl) virulence gene in L. aureus, the aim of the study was to simultaneously isolate and characterize L. monocytogenes and Staphylococcus species from 300 samples of raw meat and meat products.
Detection of Pathogenic Escherichia coli in Samples Collected at an Abattoir in Zaria, Nigeria and at Different Points in the Surrounding Environment
TLDR
Evidence is provided that pathogenic E. coli can contaminate the environment as a result of the discharge into the environment of untreated abattoir effluent, representing a reservoir for STEC and other diarrheagenic E. Escherichia coli favouring their spread to crops.
