The samples collected was ninety seven (97) from children including both males and females. Two milliliter of venipuncture blood sample withdrawn from each of the 97 children was kept undisturbed in an anticoagulant sample container. Thick and thin blood smears for malaria were prepared. Both smear were floaded and viewed to check for the presence of malaria parasite under the bright field using high power objective lens. Malaria parasite were mostly domicile among 11-15 years of age (29.9 %) while 1-5 and 6-10 had 5.2 % and 13.3 % infection respectively. The occurrence of plasmodium infection was significant among different sex groups in this present study (This suggest that the occurrence of these infection is sex dependent). The species in this community were found to be plasmodium falciparum.
