The Lagos State Government says it has uncovered plot by a non-governmental organisation (NGO) by administering harmful vaccines to children to disrupt the ongoing Polio vaccination in the state.
Dr Jide Lawal, the Permanent Secretary, Primary Healthcare Board, made this known on Tuesday night in Lagos.
Lawal said that the organisation, which he did not name, was going round schools in the state to administer vaccines believed to be harmful to children.
He said that the state Ministry of Health had commenced investigation into the allegation.
