Kwara dismisses rumours of soldiers injecting students in Omu Aran



The Kwara Government has denied rumours that soldiers are injecting school pupils in Omu-Aran , Irepodun Local Government Area of the state with killer vaccines .

The Special Adviser on Security to the Governor , Alhaji Amusa Bello , made the denial in a statement on Wednesday in Ilorin .
Parents and guardians had on hearing the rumour rushed to schools to withdraw their wards .

Some of the parents , mostly traders and commercial motorcyclists , abandoned their businesses to withdraw their wards from schools to prevent them from being injected with the alleged vaccine .

Some schools had to lock their gates to prevent the parents from gaining entrance to remove the students ..

The SA, therefore , advised members of the public to ignore the rumour as neither the Nigerian Army nor any other security agency was currently undertaking a vaccination exercise or any other health campaign in any part of the State.

“ The State Government calls on parents and guardians not to panic and to refrain from withdrawing their wards from schools based on this unfounded rumour, ” he said.
