Residents Accuse Army Of Plotting To Depopulate South-East

A free medical outreach that the Nigerian Army extended to some communities in the South- East , as part of the ongoing Operation Python Dance 2 , was described on Wednesday as a tool to depopulate the south- East region.

Pupils in public and private schools in the South- East states on Wednesday abandoned academic activities as information spread that a vaccination exercise had been added to the outreach and was meant to send schoolchildren to early graves .

In Asaba , Delta State , pupils on Wednesday abandoned classrooms following a rumour that soldiers would come to schools to inject them to death .

The unverified information filtered into Asaba at about 9 am , and quickly spread like a wildfire .

Some school heads , who could not control the situation , alerted the government , but many pupils were already out of their school premises .

It was gathered that the state government summoned heads of security agencies for quick intervention.

The state Commissioner of Information , Patrick Ukah, advised both parents and teachers not to panic, saying there was no iota of truth in the rumour .”

He said , “ This panic in schools is needless because there is no vaccination currently going on in any school .”


In Anambra State , Governor Willie Obiano , ordered the army to stop the outreach .
