Nasarawa Mourns: Seven Students Feared Dead in Tragic Rice Stampede

Seven students of Nasarawa State University, Keffi, have been reportedly killed in a stampede while struggling for rice meant to be distributed as palliative by the state government.

The students were said to have allegedly broken into the warehouse where the food items were kept to be distributed Friday morning, overpowered the security attached to the institution at about 5 a.m., and forcefully broke into the warehouse scrambling for palliative.

Vanguard correspondent gathered that 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 a.m., students had already taken over the arena, overpowered the security, and broke into the warehouse, resulting in the stampede.

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

Details later.
