Two persons, yesterday, died in a stampede during the All Progressives Congress (APC) presidential campaign visit to Plateau State.
It was learnt that the victims were trying to force their way out of the venue of the event, crowded Rwang Pam Township Stadium, which was filled beyond capacity, when they were trampled on and they died in the process.
The APC presidential candidate, General Mohammadu Buhari, had earlier addressed the mammoth crowd, promising to restore security in the north eastern zone of the country as well as improve on the agriculture and education sectors. He also promised to make jobs available for the unemployed youths if voted into power in next month’s election.
After leaving Plateau State, Buhari took his campaign to Nasarawa State.
