In what could be described as an unfortunate turn of events, a Nigerian undergraduate has lost his life in a stampede that occurred at a viewing center.
According to reports making the round, the young man identified as Gbenga Olukoyi, was a year 2 student of architecture at the Olabisi Onabanjo University, Ibogun campus, Ogun state.
It was gathered Olukoyi was at a viewing center to watch the football match between Liverpool and Barcelona, when another student raised an alarm after he felt something crawling on his leg, thinking it was a snake.
His frightening cry for help had resulted in a stampede as everyone scuttled around to make a quick exit from the centre in fear of falling victim to a snake bite.
Sadly, the stampede resulted into 40 students getting injured while Olukoyi was unfortunate to lose his life to the mishap.
It was gathered that he died after he was reportedly rejected by the hospital who insisted that those who brought him should make an initial deposit for his treatment.
May God grant his family the strength to bear the fortitude of the loss.
