#CODED-ish News::UNIBEN Stampede: Many Injured During Students Screening

5:04 AM

A heavy stampede was observed on Wednesday at the University of Benin (UNIBEN) during fresh students screening, as a result of which numerous young people were left injured.

This comes barely 2 weeks after many people suffered in the course of the immigration chaos while trying to apply for the aptitude test.

Today's stampede occurred when the students attempted to force their way into the building, and the UNIBEN security closed the gate against them, an eyewitness named Osas said. Many of the students fell, while hundreds of others were stepping on those on the ground.

According to the information gathered by The Nation, scores of students have sustained injuries.

Speaking with The Nation correspondent at the place of the incident, Osas said that several students were rushed to the hospital, adding: "But am not sure anyone died, though many of them were seriously injured."

University's Public Relations Officer, Barr. Harrison Osarenren, said there had been no casualties during the screening.
