2014 immigration stampede: Victims protest again in Abuja

THE victims of the immigration stampede of 2014 recruitment which claimed several lives in the National Stadium, Abuja, on Thursday, again staged a peaceful protest at the entrance of the National Assembly.

The victims protested against what they described as injustice against the victims of the stampede, alleging that only 15 victims were among the 500 candidates who are currently undergoing training in Kano State.

The National Coordinator of the group, Comrade Edmound Osumah, who addressed newsmen, lamented that the Federal Government through the Ministry of Interior was not sincere with the victims, as many were still roaming the streets.

He said that the National Hospital, Abuja, has the list of the victims of the stampede, stressing that the Federal Government could visit the hospital to confirm the names of the victims.

Comrade Osumah further alleged that some names were later substituted against real names of the victims, as against the directive of former president Goodluck Jonathan.
