  1. I’m a student of ABU and currently in school. We just got information that the test result of the boy suspected of Ebola sent from Lagos reads that HE IS ONLY SUFFERING FROM LEUKAEMIA. The last rumour about using salt and hot water resulted to the death of about 3 and 20 hospitalized. After this occurence, we should be careful on how we throw non-factive informations to the public.

  2. Jeez get ur facts straight. I think I just read the words ‘suspected Ebola patient’ there…as opposed to your comment on ‘diagnosed with ebola’. Just Dnt add to what d man said dere.
