Funny Reactions in Rivers State Towards Hoax Speculation


Some weeks ago, there was this story which was posted on WhatsApp which in brief was about how the Nigerian Army where going to primary schools in the south-east and southern part of the country, using their guns to forcefully get the kids vaccinated against the monkey pox virus. Later on the kids who got the vaccine died.
On Tuesday 17th October, this story found its way to the streets of Rivers state. A number of schools in different parts of the state, where been used as reference to have experienced such vaccination by the Nigerian army.
This resulted in panic by a number of parents with kids. In response some parents had to go to the school of their wards and demand for them. Some of the schools actually released the children and closed learning activities for the day. Many people started to deliberate on why the army would carry out such vaccination and also lament on the state of the country. 
In reality check, this speculation that caused this whole drama, is best described by someone as just a beer parlor story. Besides, the same rumor has taken its toll on other states such as Anambra and Imo, but still there is no valid proof like photos, video clips and figures regarding the army officials and the children that got vaccinated. The funny and disturbing part are that educated and older adults got carried away by such cock-and-bull story and began to fret.
