Stampede at YEA Job Fair leaves job seekers injured

There was a stampede at the Accra International Conference CentreFriday, September 10, as unemployed youths in Ghana thronged the venue for the Youth Employment Agency (YEA).

The YEA held the event to help connect job seekers to employers. As part of the event, there was supposed to be live recruitment where over 100 companies were reported to have been present to do instant recruitment.

However, it turned out chaotic as the turnout was overwhelming.

Video footage from the venue shows the police having a hard time controlling the crowd. It also shows broken glasses spattered with droplets of blood on the floor. Some job seekers are also seen with injuries.
