One Feared Dead, Scores Injured in UNIBEN Screening Stampede


LAGOS MARCH 3RD (URHOBOTODAY)-One person dead while scores of students sustained varying degrees of injuries in heavy stampede today, Wednesday at the University of Benin (UNIBEN), during screening of fresh students into the institution.
It was gathered that the stampede occurred when the students were attempting to force their way into the premises of the hall where the screening exercise was taking place, and UNIBEN security personnel forcefully closed the gate against them, forcing the surging students to fall, and hundreds of them marching on those on the ground.
The University’s Public Relations Officer, Barr. Harrison Osarenren, denied that nobody died at the screening
