Parliative- 7 Students reportedly killed in a stampede over rice in Nasarawa

By Dauda Omaku

Over seven students of the Nasarawa state University, Keffi, have been reportedly killed in a stampede while struggling for rice meant to be distributed as parliative by the state government this morning.

The students are said to have allegedly broken into the warehouse where the food items were kept to be distributed at 9am this morning. The students were said to have overpowered the security personnel attached to the facility and stomped into the warehouse scrambling for the parliative. Vural video shows the stampeding students in their numbers surging through the gate towards the warehouse.

Our correspondent gathered that some students billed to benefit from the state government parliative were issued with cards to admit them into the distribution venue yesterday.

It was also gathered that as early as 5am students had already taken over the arena and over- powered the security, broke into the warehouse resulting in the stampede.

Details of the incident are still sketchy at the time of filling in this report.

Details later.
