Ngige Blames Peter Obi For Catholic Church Stampede That Killed Dozens
Governorship candidate of the All Progressive Congress (APC) in the November 16 gubernatorial election in Anambra state, Dr. Chris Ngige has blamed Governor Peter Obi of Anambra state for the deadly stampede at the Ghost Adoration Ground in Anambra State leading to the death of about 30 persons.
Gov Obi in the company of the All Progressive Grand Alliance candidate in the election, Mr Willie Obiano had visited the Adoration Ground in uke town where an estimated 100,000 worshippers had gathered for a prayers, healing and spiritual retreat to drum up the support of the worshippers for the November 16 polls, but got a cold shoulder from the worshipers who mumbled that their candidate of choice was All Peoples Congress (APC) candidate, Dr. Chris Ngige.
Fracas ensued at the entrance of the Church when the crowd raised alarm that armed men had arrived the venue, foecing the worshipers to scamper for safety, a development that led to a stamping killing dozens and injuring many more.
Condemning the incident on his Facebook page, the APC candidate accused Gov. Obi and his APGA candidate, Willie Obiano of inducing the stampede after worshipers booed them.
”The priest in charge, Ebube Mmuo Nso had told Obi that the people already knew whom to vote for so should be left alone. Unfortunately, in the sheer act of wickedness, Obi’s goons charged into the crowd who booed at them and induced stampede, which led to the untimely death of 15 persons, including women and children while wounding many more,” Dr. Ngige said.
