In what seems to be a still ongoing organised epidemic by the Rivers State commissioner of information Emma Okah, in the highly acclaimed city of Port Harcourt, two victims have been hospitalized while one other has also been reported dead due to misinformation circulated round the media space by the State commissioner of information.
Students were seen in Port Harcourt running for their lives in the late hours of Tuesday morning as a result of a public statement by the State’s commissioner of information alleging the movement of the military around schools to inject students with monkey pox virus.
A secondary school student from one of the public schools around Eligbolo axis of Port Harcourt was knocked down by a car on high speed, our eyewitness reporter narrates that the incident occurred while the student was running back from school, she rushed into the road without looking out for vehicles as a result of fear from the rumor about the military which was circulated by Emma okah.
