8 Feared Dead in Stampede for Christmas Palliative in Port Harcourt


Eight people are feared dead in a stampede as people jostle for free Christmas food items in Port Harcourt.

It was gathered that the stampede occurred at about 7:30 am on Tuesday, December 15, around Rumudara Town, Obio/Akpor LGA, Port Harcourt, Rivers State.

According to Vanguard, the incident happened at an office allegedly owned by Pinkcoin, an online blockchain digital assets designed for giving charity.

Pinkcoin was said to have invited everyone who registered with them in Obio/Akpor LGA to come and redeem their Christmas palliatives, on Tuesday.

A huge crowd turned up and could not be controlled as they struggled to get access to the premises of the firm.

Unfortunately, some people were trampled upon during the rush to collect the palliatives.
