2 Pregnant Women Collapse, Die During Teacher Verification Exercise

Two pregnant women collapsed and died in Bauchi on Tuesday while waiting to be screened by the verification team from the office of the Accountant General of the Bauchi state government.
The two pregnant women (names withheld) were among the about 6,000 teachers in the state that were asked to assemble at the the state local government education secretariat for screening before collecting their salaries.

An eyewitness who pleaded anonymity told THISDAY that the first woman who was about seven months pregnant fainted when the crowd was pushing to be verified, a situation that triggered a congestion during the exercise.
According to him: “We all assembled at the local government education authority to be verified because we have not been paid for three months. People came from the local government areas of the state so there was a massive crowd that gathered at the venue.
“The verification exercise took us by surprise because we were in the classroom teaching when we were called upon to be screened. That was why there was a large turnout of people”.
