Some parents and guardians in the area had last week withdrawn their children from schools following a rumour that a military medical outreach was administering lethal vaccines to pupils in the area.

The rumour made some schools to shut down, while those that opened recorded low turnout.

But in a statement by IPOB’s Media and Publicity Secretary, Emma Powerful, the group urged the pupils to return to school.

It claimed IPOB had put security measures in place for the safety of the children.

The statement added that IPOB would continue to monitor the situation in the South-East, especially in Anambra State, to ensure that nothing untoward happens to schoolchildren.

The group maintained that it was determined to ensure the safety and well-being of children in the area, adding that under no circumstance would IPOB allow them “to be poisoned with killer virus administered by those that want all Biafrans dead.”

Last week, state and federal authorities condemned IPOB allegations which were described as false and baseless.
