Nigeria Vs Zambia 5 feared dead at stadium entrance


Five people have reportedly died as a result of a stampede at the entrance of the Godswill Akpabio International Stadium in Uyo, the Akwa Ibom State.
The stadium was the venue of the World Cup qualifier match between the Super Eagles of Nigeria and the Chipolopolo of Zambia.

According to Punch, may people were also injured while trying to avoid the soldiers who were wielding sticks.

A female fan, Aniema Ekong, who spoke on the incident said “I thank God that I’m alive. This is not the first time this kind of incident had occurred. In fact, in every major tournament, there is always a tale of woes to tell about security agents injuring or killing people.”

The Police Public Relations Officer, Elkana Bala has however debunked the report, saying nobody died.

Bala said “It is confirmed that nobody died. But some persons were injured while struggling to gain access into the stadium. The injured persons were taken to hospital for medical attention.”

The Super Eagles beat Zambia 1 – 0 to qualify for the Russia 2018 World Cup.

The war rages on about the safety of cell phones.  One side argues there’s either nothing to fear, while the other warns that your phone is causes grave harm when it comes into close contact with your body. Citing the views of other experts Dr Joseph Mercola tries to show where the real truth lies.

The year 2014 marked the first time in history that there were officially more mobile devices than people in the world – approximately 7.2 billion.

Although significantly lower, the number of cell phone users is forecast to reach 4.77 billion by the year 2017.
