Nigerian politician and Secretary to the Government of the Federation Pius Anyim and other governors escaped death narrowly as the VIP stage at a pro-Jonathan rally on Saturday collapsed, injuring a number of people, Premium Times reports.

Excerpt from Premium Times:

There was pandemonium at the Minna Trade Fair Complex on Saturday morning as the venue’s VIP seating area collapsed during a political rally organized by the Transformation Ambassador of Nigeria [TAN] to campaign for the reelection of President Goodluck Jonathan.

Dignitaries were seated and the venue was packed to the brim when the platform constructed to sit top government officials and chieftains of the Peoples Democratic Party suddenly caved in, trapping a few of those already seated.

The development sparked panic across the venue with several people scampering for safety. Some people were so scared that they began to hurry out of the venue in droves.
