Prevalence of Campylobacter species in ground water in Sokoto, Sokoto state, Nigeria

Abstract
Aim: The present study was conducted to determine the presence and prevalence of Campylobacter species in ground water in Sokoto, Sokoto State.

Materials and Methods: The prevalence of Campylobacter species was determined by collecting a total of 74 water samples from wells in Sokoto over a period of four months from May to August 2011 and analyzed using cultural isolation techniques and biochemical characterization.

Results: Totally 39 (52.70%) water samples were Campylobacter positive. The species identified were Campylobacter jejuni 23 (58.97%), Campylobacter coli 11 (28.21%) and Campylobacter hyointestinalis 5 (12.82%).

Conclusion: Based on this study, the isolation of Campylobacter species from ground water (wells) in this study is of serious public health importance as untreated water has been implicated as the cause of sporadic infections and outbreaks of Campylobacteriosis worldwide.

Key words: Campylobacter, prevalence, public health, Sokoto, water, well.
