The stampede occurred at about 10 am at the Shafa Holdings Company plc headquarters along Jos Road, on Sunday, March 24.

It was gathered that the crowd, largely women had gathered for the distribution of the Zakaat items, distributed by a Bauchi-based philanthropist.

The distribution was said to have begun smoothly, with beneficiaries called in groups to receive items, until restlessness among others led to a struggle to enter the premises.

Eyewitnesses said the restlessness resulted in a stampede as women tried to force their way inside, causing many to fall and be trampled upon, leading to casualties.
