Students in Ondo State took to their heels over army vaccination rumours

There's this widespread rumour going around that some persons on army uniform are going around public schools around the states giving out harmful vaccination capable of causing the monkey pox virus.

Here's what MPN are reporting;

The 32 Artillery Brigade of Nigerian Army, Akure, has debunked rumours of harmful vaccination being conducted by some people believed to be soldiers in Ondo State.

There was pandemonium in primary and secondary schools in the state which made parents and guardians to withdraw their children and wards, when rumours filtered in that harmful vaccination was being administered on children.

The Brigade’s Spokesperson, Maj. Ojo Adenegan, said this in a statement issued on Tuesday in Akure.

“The attention of 32 Artillery Brigade, Akure, has been drawn to the fake information making rounds in Ondo State that soldiers are administering poisonous vaccine on pupils and students of primary and secondary schools in the state.

“We are using this medium to inform the general public to disregard such information.

“There is no ongoing medical outreach in Ondo State.

“The information is the hand work of mischief makers and should be treated as such,’’ he said.

It would be recalled that such rumours affected schools in the South-East and South-South states but the army had also denied any involvement in such vaccination.
