Chibuzor an indigene of Anambra State said it all started like a joke the military men invaded schools in their numbers started administering injections to the scared students after apprehending their teachers.
Some lucky students who escaped were the ones that came out to alert onlookers of the incessant act.
However, Anambara State house of Assembly chairman on health committee Hon G Nnamdi Okafor has this to say:
I have received reports and calls stating that a team of people escorted by the military are going to schools in some parts of the state especially in Ekwusigo LGA and others forcefully immunizing school children against an unspecified virus. It was alleged that someone has died from the inoculation. This has caused panic in the entire state.I have liaised with the State Commissioner for Health, Dr. Akabuike, who is on his way to Ekwusigo for fact-finding.
As a precautionary measure, schools in the state have been closed for today and parents are to go and pick up their children/wards.
To parents and teachers, do not allow anyone to touch/innoculate your child/students.
Dr. Akabuike stated that his Ministry was not contacted and they did not give any approval to any group or team for any immunization.
