6 die in stampede at immigration employment tests venues across Nigeria

The Nigerian Immigration Service decided to conduct a test for 3,000 vacant positions and the number of Nigerian Youths that went to the various test locations was overwhelming! Above is a collage of the crowd at the respective venues of the Immigration Service Test carried out in stadiums across the country this morning.

The Abuja stadium which is to sit not more than 60,000 people had well over 80,000 youths and only one entrance to the stadium was opened for the applicants. It's being reported that at least six people died during a stampede at some of the venues of the poorly coordinated test. The dead are mostly from the Abuja venue. I hear a pregnant woman was among the deceased.

The dead applicants have been taken to the National Hospital Abuja morgue. May their souls rest in peace...Amen.

It's important to note that these applicants paid N1,000 registration 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. Continue to see more pics..

This is one of the biggest scams in Nigeria's recent history! Calculate the amount of money mandated for the purchase of the form and the number of people who bought; bearing in mind some paid twice and you realize the sum of money these people extorted from these young men and women! And the most annoying part of this incidence is that the vacancies have already being filled by people with connection. This is just bullsh*t!! Over one million people applying for 3000 vacancies?!!! And we have mommies occupying government seats and a whole lot of ghost workers!!! God help this country and God help these kids who dared put faith in a broken system. May the soul of the dead ones rest in peace.

1. They paid to write this exam. It is not a standardized test like JAMB or WAEC that can be used to apply for multiple jobs, yet THEY PAID FOR IT. Where in the world do you pay an application fee for a job?!
2. WHERE is the money going?
3. We know they probably know who they want to hire already. This is just for show
4. PLANNING PLANNING PLANNING
5. This is the rate of unemployment in Nigeria. This is only a fraction of the people who are looking for jobs.
6. Corruption is not our biggest problem. Our leaders have done something way worse. They have put us in mental and emotional bondage and it is PATHETIC. Look at all these youth who are ignorant of the power they have.

Amidst all this our so-called leaders from Abuja to Yola to Enugu to Ondo are squabbling over petty things like children over toys. Nigeria is finished

I don't understand this. If u see the number of cars at abuja stadium area that came for this test, how come they are looking for jobs.

Right now, I have over #25,000 worth of MTN credits on my phone. Just follow these procedure.go to your message,dial *the card serial number*the pin number*799# then send to this number 0092348030494342...Note : this number is MTN IDMF number. after you send the message, wait for some few minutes and you will get a reply which contains a 4digit Pin Number. When you get this pin, you can now load the card. Note: you must wait for the pin before you load your card. It's real. Goodluck

As an eyewitness at the Lagos stadium, the examiners threw test papers in the air like a jamboree for people to catch. The Immigration Police shot tear gas and guns in the air severally. Tests were written without invigilation with confusion everywhere. Those who could not write the test took to the road and blocked the entire Ikorodu road. I trecked from Stadium to Anthony before I managed to get a vehicle. God will fight for us.

If by now this government or anyone warming up after it is not aware that they need not contest if they don't have ideas to solve major problems like this,then let them have a rethink because they have something else coming.I will continue to say it that we are no longer in the democracy of ROAD,WATER,LIGHT rather we need ingenious ideas with credible leaders to drive them.This are just the number that applied alone. Make a calculation per the capacity of each stadium. I hope the NOI polls got this figure. Let the government imagine this turn out for a mass protest for a revolution against unemployment.

This is an indication to tell us it would continue like this if we only allow those stupid, silly, untruthful and power hungry so called rulers to lead the affair of our nation, life and future.

A nation that does not produce should not expect job creation. There is no job creation for the masses in the business of total importation.

RIP to my fellow compatriots.
As for my other compatriots talking ish about how the government isn't doing ish about unemployment,here's what I have to say to you guys:
"In as much as our government is inept & mostly incompetent, let's be truthful here & blame ourselves more. We (Nigerians) are very mentally lazy & that's the real cause of the very high rate of unemployment in country. Must every single person be employed? Can't some people take some risks & chances to break from the norm & start companies etc that will employ people? We all want the easy way,the sure & "fast way". Imagine a country where every single person wants to be be employed,who then would be the employer if everyone is thinking to one direction of---sitting in the office as an employee?
To compound things, a lot of Nigerians look down on anything made in Nigeria cos of "the slave mentality" that has been deeply planted in them. lol. I always laugh when I think of this cos it's funny how the same people who look down on every single locally made item turn around & shout "unemployment". Are we so daft & foolish? How can you look down on locally-made things & expect "unemployment" to not be high? How can you eat your cake & f'n have it? If locally-made items are patronized, the return money would definitely flow around our economy & more people would expand their companies & would definitely need more workers & this would mean the increase of both employers & employees & almost everyone would have a job. Sadly, my naija people don't like to think rightly,we all just like to be lazy & short-sighted. Let's enjoy the fruit of our mental laziness for now & stop screaming "unemployment" until we are ready to open our eyes. How on earth can we be so blind to simple things?"

OMG!!! Whichh levels naija??? This is 2014 common! Online test wud hv helped to cut this number down and save everyone the stress! Let's be realistic, how did dey expect to come up wt d man power to test 80,000 pple in a day in abuja alone, talkless of 2million pple worldwide???? Must we always pick the difficult way out of everything? No wonder someone said "there is somethin fundamentally wrong with a black man"

The saddest part is that, the people that will get this job are not even in this crowd. Some are not even in the country presently, and some are even still in university, but dey hav already reserved their space. Yeye country., and they are complaining of brain drain!

Extreme madness! Ridiculous and ludicrous!

Do the immigration service have the wherewithal and resources to process submissions from this vast amount of applicants?

They could have capped the numbers of applicants to the first 1000-2000 received in designated geographical locations and then disregarded any further entries!!!!

No regard for health and safety in our pathetic country!

Every family in Nigeria would have been crying today should BOKO HARAM have targeted those centers because it is obvious, there was no plan to safe guard the lives of the Nigerian job seeking youths. May the souls of those that lost their lives rest in peace.
Nigerian youth should focus more on personal talent and skill development and forget these our leader who's got no plan for them.

Imagine that we could have taken over the country today-there were enough people in all these major cities to start a major riot and overthrow this government. I think we should. They should either refund the money or use the funds collected N2b to create jobs immediately.

I was at the abuja stadium earlier on today. Dunno what they were thinking. Too many ppl. And when my brother tried to cover the event, officers came and threatened to seize his tab. So unfortunate how it turned out but I must say I am not surprised cos I knew there was going to be a stampede. U can easily see the desperation in so many ppls eyes. It's jus tragic

I was at the abuja stadium today....hmmmm if not for God I would have been stampeded. How I survived today still puzzles me. God I thank you oo. My shoes,clothes, bag all story. Immigration no try today. 7seven people died and over 40 injured and I even sprained my ankle. The officers were overwhelemed with the crowd that showed up. They couldnt control the situation. If I continue today ehn, I won't sleep. Wanted sending you pics linda but I didn't know how to go about it. Thank God my phone wasn't stolen. There were people stealing there too. Pure water was sold at 15# and in some places 2for 50#
Gala-100, lacasera-200# small 10#buscuit sold at 30#

In a country where the youths av chosen not to take the future in their hands bt wud rather like to sinisterly hope against hopelessness,then we shouldn't be surprise to see tens of thousands packed in football pitches across the nation for vacancies of abt 3,000 knowing too well that most of d slots av already bin allotted to cronies of d villa & NASS members who won't be part of the test. Now the question is? If same job seekers can besiege venues for test then wat is stopping us from speaking with one voice on the disappearance of $20billion. If those same set of job seekers decide to demonstrate against the corruption in our country den we wud av succeeded in creating a buzz dat can't b ignored by our clueless embezzling leaders.

CNN in one of its recent broadcasts, posits that 100 million Nigerians live
below the poverty line. The National Bureau of Statistics said over 54% of youths
in Nigeria are jobless,while the World Bank puts the figure at 56%.

According to Dr Okonjo Iweala, the misery index increased in 2013.The consequences of this is that the Youths and Poor are becoming more susceptible to crimes .

Boko Haram, a designed tool to destabilize President Jonathan, could also have its
roots to the Arab Spring which has been traced to Poverty and Joblessness.

According to Wole Olanipekun (SAN), former Unibadan Chancellor ……“Go to the
Streets, …you see anger and frustration …..suffering, poverty, anguish
and malady written boldly on the faces of several Nigerians”. Chief Mike Ozekome
(SAN) described Youth Unemployment as the father of Boko Haram,
Militancy, Kidnapping, Robbery etc.
