The government announced on Tuesday that the exercise would take place during a free rabies vaccination campaign that began with the goal of preventing animal deaths in the state.
Ms. Abisola Olusanya, State Commissioner for Agriculture, announced this at the inauguration of a vaccination campaign held at the Oba Ayangburen Palace in Ikorodu, Ikorodu State.
