Addis Ababa, February 13, 2019 (FBC) – Fifteen people are now known to have died in a stampede at an election rally in Nigeria on Tuesday, according to BBC.

It happened at a packed stadium in the city of Port Harcourt shortly after President Muhammadu Buhari had finished a speech.

There are reports that people rushed towards a gate which the police had only partially opened.

In the capital Abuja, President Buhari and his main rival – the former vice-president Atiku Abubakar – have signed an agreement in which they have pledged to promote peace and follow the legal process if there’s a dispute after the vote.

Both candidates are due to hold separate election rallies in Abuja later.
