The Food and Drugs Authority has shut down the East Legon branch of popular restaurant Marwako.

The shut down followed claims of food poisoning by dozens of people who patronized the branch last weekend.

Unconfirmed social media reports say dozens of patients are still receiving care at the Nyaho Clinic and other health facilities in Accra.
