8-year-old Ifeyinwa pictured above is being treated at the Federal Medical Center Owerri in Imo state after suffering severe burns from an injection she received from a nurse. According to reports, Ifeyinwa had fallen ill some weeks ago and her aunt took her to see a nurse that had a chemist around their home.
The nurse said she showed symptoms of malaria and gave her an “anti-malaria injection”. Shortly after receiving the injection, Ifeyinwa’s body started to react seriously leading to some parts of her body burning up. Photo credit: Ally Moshood Emirate
