The students were said to have allegedly broken into the warehouse where the food items were kept to be distributed Friday morning, overpowered the security attached to the institution at about 5 a.m., and forcefully broke into the warehouse scrambling for palliative.
Newsmen said that some students billed to benefit from the Nasarawa state government palliative were issued I.D cards to admit them into the venue where the distribution was to take place.
It was also gathered that as early as 5 a.m., students had already taken over the arena, overpowered the security, and broke into the warehouse, resulting in the stampede.
