💔 Tragedy: Six people reported dead at AFCON 2021 match

This is unbelievable. Six people have been reported dead during a stampede at Olembe stadium before the Cameroon and Comoros AFCON 2021 match on Monday night.

According to the reports, the disaster struck before the last 16 match between hosts Cameroon and Comoros. It is understood 40 people were injured and taken to hospital after they tried to force themselves into the stadium.

One of the confirmations came from Africa's leading journalist Usher Komugisha.

"The Cameroon Health Minister Dr Manaouda and CAF Secretary General Veron Mosengo-Omba have visited the hospitals that are treating the victims of today’s deadly stampede at the Olembe Stadium in Yaoundé," Komugisha said.

"May those who lost their lives rest in eternal peace," she added.

Meanwhile, CAF is expected to release an official statement in the next few hours.
