At least 10 job seekers  died today while many more sustained varying degrees of injury this morning during a stampede at the National Stadium, Abuja venue of the ongoing recruitment test by the Nigeria Immigrations Service (NIS).
Several thousands of job-seekers thronged the Abuja stadium to write the test but only one entrance to the 60,000-capacity stadium was made available. An applicant who turned back after seeing the crowd said there was no way the applicants would not have been more than 60,000.
At least 40 of those who were injured were admitted at the National Hospital in Abuja, while several others were referred to other hospitals due to lack of capacity to admit and treat all those injured.
8 people have been confirmed dead in calaber and i hear there are casualties in Lagos also. It’s a pity we live in a country where our leaders dont value us. Dont be surprised that those who will end up getting these jobs are busy relaxing at home. More pictures when you continue

  1. This is alarming!!! Millions of people just for a mere 3 thousand job slots in the immigration services. Are they all truly unemployed or just the typical human nature to want for a better condition even though some of those present might still have a job? Are there no other processes for short-listing candidates? The morons in charge of this recruitment process are brain dead!! Rumors say the applicants even paid N1000 each…never heard of paying money for a job that you don't have or for any job at all… don't tell me poverty causes ignorance! Nigerians cause their own wahala, I swear. A lot has to change.

    • It's important to note that these applicants paid N1,000 application fee and there were over 2 million applicants…you do the calculation, that's about N2billion. We need the Minister of Interior and Comptroller General of Immigration to address what happened today

  2. hy cant the youth come out like this and fight for the corruption of this country and for there right, like other western world youth and see if the government will not change or adjust for this corrupt nation

    • It's time we kick useless leaders of out this great country coz, they said and quoted? Youth are the leaders of tomorrow but, it's opposite meaning that's why we're suffering and they're busy living large and sending their children abroad to school put them in high places.

  3. Them won go watch football? Oh my heart bleed when i see Nigerians suffering like this we need revolution in this country.

  4. Got the BC below from a friend, it , makes a nice read in light of our present predicament:

    Arise O' Sleeping Youth of Nigeria!

    Awolowo was (37), Akintola (36), Ahmadu Bello (36) Balewa (34) and Okotie-Eboh (27), Enahoro (27) led the struggle for independence after the death of Macaulay. Only Zik was 42 at the time.

    In 1966, the first coup was led by: Kaduna Nzeogwu (29) and countered by Murtala Mohammed (28), Theophilus Danjuma (28), Babangida (25), Nanven Garba (23), Sani Abacha (23), Shehu Musa Yaradua (23), and brought into power Gowon (32), Ojukwu (33), Obasanjo (29), Buhari (24).

    Most of the military administrators who governed the states under the successive military regimes, most of whom are governors now, were under 30 years.

    The brief democratic dispensation which interjected the military interregnums also saw the House of Representatives in particular populated by majority of members under 30 years as well as some senators.

    Under 30s were also not in short supply with appointments, we have examples of MT Mbu who became foreign affairs minister at 23 and Pat Utomi who became a presidential adviser at 27 and so on and so forth.

    NOW:

    Why is it that this age bracket is today still sleeping in 3 seater chairs in their parents’ homes?

    Why is it that this age bracket is today still collecting pocket money from their parents?

    Why is it that this age bracket is today still writing JAMB?

    Why is it that this age bracket is today still sagging their trousers?

    Why is it that this age bracket is today still searching for jobs?

    Why is it that this age bracket is today no longer qualified to even be leaders of youth wings of political parties?

    Why is it that this age bracket is today so docile?

    Why is it that this age bracket is today still incapable of feeding itself?

    Why is it that this age bracket is today barred by law from even aspiring to certain political offices?

    Why is it that this age bracket is today incapacitated, unwilling, unable and incapable of asking questions?

  5. Hahahahahaha if pple come interview like dis how judgment day won be na. Make fellow youth make una go house ooo no interview 4 una

  6. Really! A country like Nigeria without no social welfare can you imagine how these folks eat and survive,it's unfortunate!! the struggle continue people wake up,take back your country.

    • Which kin yeye Country b dis ?4 how long are we gonna pretend all is well?m sure non of Dia sons and relatives is here may God save our land n punish anybody punishing us ijn

  7. the main people to get the jobs are not even here, some are even sleeping, nigeria is contact…u must know some one at the top to get there, imagine my uncle is the director or one oga of Nigerian Immigration Service(NIS), i will be home sleeping and waiting for call up…

    • You are right. people av bin employed already n dey are at home relaxing, pple suppose to have known dis, I dnt knw y dey r jst wasting deir tym. Dos dat lose deir lifes wot wil bcom of dem nw.
      I think its tym we wake up to reality n stop deceiving ourselves

  8. See the great youths of my country!!! I hail you all,U wanna live a life worth living but ur leaders are very heartless…..
    The saddest part is that these people would borrow money to attend the interview only for them not to get the job at the end of the day!!!!!
    Oh Nigeria,It is well☹☹☹☹

    • Very pathetic…
      But the question is: can't these youths read in btw the lines? We are trapped in the woods, an the only escape route is "a creative mind".

  9. Imagine!! All dz job seekers? and govt say dey provided employment. Who did dey provide d employment for? Liars in aso rock!

    • d situation is already so much worse than being chaotic! rmbr its being reported that 10persons r already dead in the stampede right there at the stadium

  10. See the great people of my country!!! I hail you all,U wanna live a life worth living but ur leaders are very heartless…..
    The saddest part is that these people would borrow money to attend the interview only for them not to get the job at the end of the day!!!!!
    Oh Nigeria,It is well☹☹☹☹

  11. This not job opening but a super eagle's match preparation for world cup. Despite lack of job, the government cannot give incentives t unemployed graduates as it is been done in other country, but our $20 billion can got missing without a clue. May God give us a leader that will deliver us.

  12. I see revolution! This stadium has never been these filled up during a football match but look @ thousands looking for a mere job. #revolution I preach! #YoungMoney

  13. How can d present youth protest d evils of our leadership when they have perfected acts of thuggery,robbery n kidnap,being manipulated by d same ppl in power,God help us.
