Palliatives: 23 Hospitalized, 2 Nasarawa University Students Died in Stampede

The Head of Information of the school, Abraham Habu, disclosed this to Channels Television via a telephone conversation.

He said the school had received palliatives from the state government to distribute to the students to cushion the effect of the economic hardship.

According to him, the palliatives were billed for distribution today at the convocation arena of the school before some students overpowered the security on ground, causing a stampede which resulted in death and injuries of the students while they carted away the food items.

He added that normalcy has returned and the 23 students are receiving medical attention.

The distribution of palliatives to students at the state’s postsecondary institutions was started early this week by the Nasarawa State government. The early-week distribution has helped 9,000 students from tertiary institutions in Lafia and Akwanga
