Two Nasarawa State University students feared d£ad in stampede for state government palliative (photos/videos)

At least two students of the Nasarawa State University, Keffi(NSUK) have been confirmed dead in a stampede that took place at the institution’s convocation square where they were asked to come and pick up bags of rice sent as palliatives by the state government.

 

The state government had recently flagged off the distribution of 2 bags of 7.5kg rice and ₦5,000 each as palliative to students of the state in tertiary institutions.

 

 

 

The distribution of the bags of rice for the beneficiaries at NSUK took a different turn this morning when the place became rowdy, and students forced their way into the premises where the bags were to be distributed and started carting away as many as their hands could hold. The rush resulted in a stampede with many of the students trampling on one another.

 

Two students of the school have been confirmed dead in the incident.
