28 killed, 200 wounded in Anambra church stampede

About 28 people Died At Peter Obi / Willie Obiano Campaign Stop in the early morning hours of today [November 2, 2013] at a campaign event of the All Progressive Grand Alliance [APGA] at a prayer house in Uke in Idenmili – Anambra central senatorial district.

Governor Peter Obi and his candidate, Willie Obiano had arrived to the prayer house [Adoration Ministry] at the early morning hours of about $4:15am to address the audience that had come for night vigil.

The arrival caught the audience unaware and surprising. And as Peter Obi mounted the stage to address the audience – the audience broke out in a quiet murmur – unsure of what to make of it, the Governor continued to deliver his campaign speech with Willie Obiano standing beside him. Governor Peter Obi promised to make available N5million to the prayer house to help tackle a gully erosion site near the Adoration grounds.

As he spoke, the quiet murmuring grew louder – followed by chants of ‘Onwa, Onwa’ (Senator Ngige). And in reaction to the chants of Onwa, Willie Obiano/Peter Obi’s men including security operatives began rushing towards the area where the chants of Onwa was coming from. The chanters were moving away from the approaching armed men. In the process, it turned into a stampede.

At the end of the stampede, over 28 corpses were seen littered on the grounds. An estimate of over 200 were injured. A large percent of the dead and injured are believed to be Ngige supporters, this is according to one of the survivors of the stampede – who also added that “they rejected Obiano and willie and were chanting Ngige Ngige it took hours to calm the crowd by Father Ebube Muonso so that Peter Obi could speak. Peter Obi made donation of N2million to the Reverend Father. The Father rejected it and ask him to give that to the poor whom he have starved for years. And later there was a stampede.

28 corpses have been deposited at Crown Hospital Nkpor. The wounded taken to Borromeo Hospital.
