The Ex­ec­u­tive Sec­re­tary of the FCT Pri­mary Health Ed­u­ca­tion Board, Dr. Ril­wan Mo­hammed, said that of the 6,000 per­son­nel de­ployed to im­mu­nise el­i­gi­ble chil­dren in the FCT, nine were af­fected by the Nyanya bomb blast.

Mo­hammed made this known when he vis­ited the in­jured vic­tims in­clud­ing im­mu­ni­sa­tion fa­cil­i­ta­tors in var­i­ous govern­ment and pri­vate hos­pi­tals in the Abuja Mu­nic­i­pal Area Coun­cil.
