At least 7 students from Nasarawa State University (NSUK) have lost their lives in a stampede while struggling for rice palliatives

At least seven students of the Nasarawa State University, Keffi, have been confirmed in a stampede while over thirty others are currently receiving treatment in a hospital.

VerseNews gathered that the deceased undergraduates were allegedly struggling for rice meant to be distributed as palliative by the Nasarawa state government.

According to reports, the students overpowered the security attached to the institution and forcefully entered the facility to scramble for palliative.

As reported by Vanguard, some students billed to benefit from the Nasarawa state government palliative were issued I.D. cards to admit them into the venue where the distribution was to take place.

It was also gathered that as early as 5 am, students had already taken over the arena, resulting in the stampede.

Reacting to the incident, Enough is Enough (EiE), a coalition of Nigerian youth advocacy groups, said it is an “indictment of the economic distress ravaging the nation”.

It expressed its “deepest condolences” to the families and community impacted by the tragedy.

EiE said: “This disturbing incident lays bare the government’s (at all levels) mishandling of the economic crisis and its inability to create an environment where citizens can live with dignity instead of stampeding for handouts.”
