There is serious pandemonium in Ugbomro Community, Uvwie Local
Government Area of Delta State as parents raced down to pick their
children from school at about 9am before closing hours, threatening
wars over rumored vaccination and injection of school children.
New Nigerian Newspapers gathered that virtually all public and private schools Ugbomro, Jakpa, Effurun Communities,Uvwie Local Government Area as well as Warri have been closed down.
Teachers have scamped for safety in other not to be mobbed by the fearful parents. But the Delta State Commissioner of Police, CP Zanna Mohammed Ibrahim in a statement signed by the Delta State Acting Police Public
Relations Officer, DSP Andrew Aniamaka had on Wednesday October 11
assured Deltans and dispelled rumours that security agencies
were engaged in forceful vaccination/injection of school children with
suspected substances in neighbouring Anambra State, and are likely to
come to schools in Delta State to do so.
CP Ibrahim insisted that there is no cause for alarm as Delta is safe,
calm and secure.
While reiterating that the rumour is spurious and orchestrated by mischievous elements whose sole aim is to cause unnecessary panic in an otherwise very peaceful and orderly state, CP Ibrahim called on Deltans to disregard the rumours and go about their lawful businesses and assured them that the command will continually do all within its power to ensure their safety and security at all times.
