Nigeria vs Zambia: No Life Lost In Uyo Stadium

Nigeria vs Zambia: No Life Lost In Uyo Stadium

There was no such incident as stampede while football fans were trying to enter the stadium during the World Cup qualifier against Zambia as oppose to the claim by punch.

There was no life lost and nobody sustained serious injuries on Saturday following a stampede at the entrance of Godswill Akpabio International Stadium in Uyo, the Akwa Ibom State capital.

Though there was a huge crowd at the stadium to watch a match between the Super Eagles of Nigeria and the Chipolopo of Zambia, soldiers did not allegedly beat anybody at the gates of the stadium with heavy sticks.

Our reporters gathered that the ambulances seen were just patrolling the premises as opposed to conveying injured persons to the hospital. Nigeria vs Zambia
The claim by Punch is a fictitious reportage and should not regarded as true since the match between Nigeria and Zambia was a peaceful and a good quality crowd control was done by the officials.

Furthermore, one of the fan by name The Prophet interviewed by our correspondent said "The death news was to catch the attention of readers. There is now where is this report where the reporter claimed he saw one dead body talk less of five. None of the people interviewed mentioned anything about death. When the police replied the punch writer that no one died he did not argued it. So where are the evidence of 5 people death? Let's read with understanding between the lines. A journalist will always want to give alarming title."
