Nigeria Stampede: Several Dead At Buhari Rally

Nigeria Stampede: Several Dead At Buhari Rally

It is instructive to note that Mr. President was pelted in Abeokuta barely 24 hours after his Zamfara state rally on Sunday, where he attempted to incite Nigerians to join the APC in their planned resort to violence to derail the 2019 general election, the statement continued. "If you give us the next four years, I assure you, you will not regret it".

President Buhari also insisted that those involved in the wastage of over 16 billion dollars on power sector without any meaningful results under the previous administrations would be investigated and anyone found wanting would be prosecuted.

"You know the condition of our roads, you know the condition of the railway, it was virtually killed and you know there was no power". Where is the money?

But the University of Port Harcourt (UPTH) said it received 14 dead bodies who were brought to the hospital apart from unconfirmed numbers of people at the emergency ward.

"We have already done so in a number of cases, you know it, they came and bought properties here in Abuja, they invested outside the country, we are appealing to the countries, Europe and America to help us recover the looted funds and property which we are putting back to build infrastructure with the resources available to us".

Jundallah, a pro-Sunni group still active in the region on Iran's border with Pakistan , claimed responsibility for that attack. And most recently, an attack on a military parade in September in Iran's oil-rich southwest killed over 20 and wounded over 60.

"Our gathering here today clearly demonstrates the importance of the upcoming elections as well as how our democracy has matured, not only to our people, but also to the global community whose solidarity, Nigeria's democracy has benefited from".

In capital Abuja, President Muhammadu Buhari and the main opposition candidate Atiku Abubakar on Wednesday pledged peaceful presidential and legislative elections.

The incident happened at a stadium in the southern city of Port Harcourt when the crowd surged towards a gate after President Buhari's speech.

He added that the victory of President Buhari would rub on the other APC candidates in the state most especially the governorship candidate, Dapo Abiodun, stating that the state was fully for the APC as it can not afford to concede to the opposition.
