This is contained in a statement issued by the Information Officer of the local government council, Malam Rabiu Khalil.
Khalil said about 40 other children affected by the same disease were receiving medical attention.
Malam Yakubu Sani, a representative of the World Health Organisation (WHO) in the area, attributed the outbreak to poor routine immunisation and inadequate health mobilisation activities.
The District Head of the area, Alhaji Hamza Bayero, however, urged government to provide emergency medical care to residents to prevent further spread of the disease.
NAN recalls that about six children had lost their lives to measles in Dashi community of the same local government area in the past two months.
