There is pandemonium in Anambra state as pupils, students and market women and men ran for their lives and that of their wards in school as the Nigerian Army free medical attention cause serious concern among citizens.
The free medical treatment by the Nigerian army has gotten a very bad impression in South East Nigeria, where they are obviously not welcome. The Operation Python dance is ill-conceived and the people have refused it by all means
The Republican News can authoritatively confirm that the people of Ekwusigo LGA, Nnewi, Onitsha and other towns have deserted markets, schools and other public places to avoid army medical outreach.
Children in schools ran for their lives at the sight of the Nigerian army medical group, who they called Hausa-Fulani killers who inject children with deadly diseases.
All schools in Anambra have closed at the time of this report.
Parents have taken their wards away from school to avoid medical attention by members of the Nigerian armed forces medical outreach.
Some of the children The Republican News interviewed in Omagba Primary School in Onitsha confirmed with hard breathing after running away from their school to avoid being injected.
They claimed that those who were injected by the’ Hausa people’ fainted on the spot after the injection. They said that Hausa-Fulani people were in the uniform of nurses and came to their school gate and banged on the gate. Their gateman refused to open but went to inquire from their head teacher and other teachers, who then came to the gate but refused to open for those uniformed nurses.
After this incident, the teachers reportedly ran away and they told their pupils to run away to avoid being injected. This caused a very big pandemonium in the Omagba primary school in Onitsha.
This very same news was confirmed in Nnewi, Ozubulu and other towns in Anambra state.
But The Republican News later learnt that it was the Nigerian army medical outreach, who obviously are not welcome in this region to conduct any medical outreach. The people do not want the Nigerian army and whatever they will give out whether free or not.
