NAN recalls that 20 persons were injured in Kuje and 19 in the Nyanya and Kuje bomb blasts, respectively, on Oct. 2.

Chonoko said that the agency had no report on any hospital that had refused to treat the victims, contrary to some media reports.

He said that the names of such hospitals should be forwarded to the agency for appropriate action.

"We have not had such cases and any one with facts should come forward and the agency will take appropriate action," he said.

NAN recalls that 15 and five persons lost their lives in the Kuje and Nyanya bomb blasts, respectively.
