Over the years, there have been multiple occasions where stampedes have occurred in the holy city of Mecca during Hajj prigilmage. One of the most fatal of these stampedes occurred on Sept. 24, 2015, where hundreds, maybe thousands, of pilgrims were crushed to death at the hajj in Mecca.
The Associated Press gave the death toll to be at least 2,400 people, while the Saudi authorities give an official death toll of 769.

3. The fatal Jewish Stampede

Source: https://buzzlist.co/2017/09/11/86/3/

A Romano-Jewish scholar and historian, Flavius Josephus recorded that in 66 AD, at around the beginning of the First Roman–Jewish War, a Roman soldier mooned Jewish pilgrims at the Jewish Temple in Jerusalem who had gathered for Passover, and “spake such words as you might expect upon such a posture” causing a riot in which youths threw stones at the soldiers, who then called in reinforcements – the pilgrims panicked, and the ensuing stampede resulted in the death of ten thousand Jews.

I was in abuja stadium to take the test during the immigration stampede. A 60000 capacity stadium yet 68000 candidates were invited. In my very eye I saw a girl being step upon. She cried for help luckily for her myself and another guy were around to pull her up from being stampede to death. She came out alive but not without several bruises. Not fewer that 18 pple died in abuja stadium that day.i still haven't forgiven Jonathan and PDP for this act.
