Tragedy at Immigration Aptitude Test


Not fewer than Twelve people died on Saturday the 15th of March at the Liberation Stadium Elekahia Port Harcourt and many more others sustained injuries of various degrees some still very unconscious in Brait Wait Memorial Hospital Port Harcourt during the immigration aptitude test at which over Two ( 2 ) Million people sat for in all the Thirty Six states of the federation.
 
Stampede started when some people forced themselves into the venue of the aptitude test liberation stadium at Port Harcourt claiming they paid One thousand naira N1000.00 for the
online registration at the designated bank but was not duly registered because of the difficulties encountered during the period.

Statistics has revealed that the organizers of the recruitment made over Two Billion Naira (N2, 000, 000000.00) from over Two Million unemployed poor Nigerians that applied for the job. The high level of corruption in Nigeria both in public and private sectors has become a syndrome with the rich getting richer and the poor getting much poorer thus adding to the high level of crimes and youth restiveness in the country.

The major opposition party through its publicity secretary Mr. Lai Mohamed on Sunday evening on radio called for the immediate resignation of the minister of interior Mr. Abba Moro following the death of the applicants. The statement also urged the federal government to institute a high powered panel to unravel the remote cause of the incident. At Abuja the federal capital territory it was also gathered that over Eight people all lost their lives and similar incident happened also at Edo state and Lagos Nigeria.
