I AM A WITNESS: STOP RUMOUR MONGERING
By Fr. Chetanna Jude Chukwuneke.
Thank you everyone. Beyond my calls and e-information from so many social media platforma: I have a firsthand information by visiting the site.
There is a Medical Outreach of 62 medical professionals and personal of 82 Division Enugu at St Michael's Catholic Church field Amakwa Ozubulu. The team had 5 doctors.
Before I proceed to detail the medical units in the team; they was proper dissemination and authorization from the appropriate authorities. Firstly the Administrator of Ekwusigo Local Government Area, then the Obi of Ozubulu, who invited his Council and approved it. The Obi dispatched information to all the churches in Ozubulu and they said it was announced well in the churches (all denominations). I confirmed for two Catholic parishes. People from these parishes confirmed it in their numbers.
Today they didn't go to any school, they settled at St. Michael's Catholic Church field Amakwa, Ozubulu. It was an Medical Outreach for the entire town.
They had more than five units;
4) Medical Laboratory Sciences Unit,
6) Pharmaceutical unit,
7) Confectionery unit had food and drinks for patients.
? More than 10 big sized canopy and seats.
There was no taking down patients names, they treated without noting one's identity.
They were taking vital signs.
They Dentistry unit had facilities for minor surgeries.
The Ophthalmology unit was doing free eye tests and giving free glasses.
They did not move into any school at all and the did not force any person to come.
NB: Please let medical personnels teach us what is Medical Outreach.
AIT and NTA were there to cover it. They said why Ozubulu was chosen as one of the places it will be done was to unwrite the bad news of the past.
This medical outreach was worth millions of Naira to people who could not afford it, but bet me the turn out was affected.
Who spread this rumour, this fake news. People said the panic reached Emene Enugu state and Ebonyi state. I was personally called by friends from those places. The were people who got wounded in the panic, schools were vacated at Ozubulu and Nnewi environs. Proprietors of schools from Neni called too. May be it reached other Eastern states and places. I don't know.
What social media platforms and groups carried this fake news that caused stampede?
Our people have been deprived free medical services by PEOPLE WHO DO NOT LOVE THEM BUT CLAIM THEY DO.
WHEN ARE WE GOING TO STOP SPREADING UNVERIFIED NEWS?
RUMOUR MONGERING CAN CAUSE DEATHS.
In my Primary Five in Enugu, around 1985/86 there was the rumour at Idaw River Primary School that Mermaid (Mama iwota) came out from the river and pupils of the School went into stampede and more than 7 died and many wounded. I was in the group that represented WTC Primary School Enugu at their funeral Mass in the school. Then that Mama iwota and madam Koikoi were moving around and killing people who had nothing to protect themselves, then as a small boy I would always put a rosary bead in my pocket and allow the crucifix part of it to be dangling outside my pocket to scare them. Lol.
NB: I AM REPORTING FROM SITE AFTER INTERVIEWING THE MILITARY MEDICAL OFFICERS ON THE TEAM AND I SAW FOR MYSELF.
I AM REV FR CHETANNA JUDE CHUKWUNEKE FROM NNEWI DIOCESE, FROM EGBEMA OZUBULU AND WORKING AS CHAPLAIN, ST CAMILLUS DE LELLIS CHAPLAINCY, COLLEGE OF HEALTH SCIENCES, NNAMDI AZIKIWE UNIVERSITY, OKOFIA-OTOLO, NNEWI CAMPUS, NNEWI, ANAMBRA.
I LEFT AT ABOUT 2PM FROM ST MICHAEL'S CATHOLIC CHURCH FIELD AMAKWA OZUBULU AND NO TEACHER WAS SHOT. I AM ASKING WHERE THE HELL IS THIS RUMOUR OF A TEACHER BEING SHOT COMING FROM? IT IS NOT A SCHOOL AFFAIR.
