Governor Wike to probe Stampede at Port Harcourt Polo Club

Statement released from the Government House read:
“On behalf of the Government and people of Rivers State, I pray for God to grant the bereaved families the fortitude to bear the loss of their loved ones.

“I also pray for the souls of all the faithful departed rest in perfect peace. And to the injured, I wish them a speedy recovery.”

“Rivers State government will constitute a probe panel to investigate the incident and details on what transpired.”

🔅(Recall that: Over 40 persons, including a pregnant woman, multiple children lost their lives as a result of stampede which occurred two days back at the ‘Shop For Free programme’ organised by Kings Assembly Church.

It was gathered that members of the public tried to force in their way through the gate as early as 6:30am which resulted to a stampede and eventually the deaths recorded.)
