Seven Applicants Die In Stampede At Immigration Employment Screening


At least seven job seekers died on Saturday at the Abuja National Stadium while scrambling to secure seats for a recruitment test into the Nigerian Immigration Service.‬

‪The National Hospital, less than a kilometre away from the stadium, received the bodies and confirmed the casualty figure.‬

‪The stampede ensued after the over 20,000 job seekers scrambled through a poorly organized barricade at the test venue, witnesses said.‬

‪The police in Abuja said they are yet to get information on the deaths.‬

‪The Immigration service spokesperson, Chukwuemeka Obuah, also claimed ignorance of the deaths, saying he was away coordinating a similar test in Abeokuta.‬
