The vaccine scare, which threw most parents in Rivers State into panic on Tuesday, may have come and gone, but an 11-year-old pupil, Michael Olusola, still bears the pain of the false alarm allegedly raised by some unknown persons. Olusola, a primary six pupil of Government Primary School, Igwuruta, Port Harcourt, was among three children injured as a result of the scare that caused so much panic in the state. He was said to have sustained a severe injury on his left hand when he attempted to jump the fence to avoid being innoculated with a deadly substance. Our correspondent gathered that some miscreants had taken advantage of the situation to break into the only school gate before gaining entrance into the premises. The pupils, who saw the hoodlums destroy their computers and other equipment, believed that they (hoodlums) would come after them and they decided to escape through the fence.
