Indomitable Lions Of Cameroon Donate 50 Million To Victims Of The Olembe Stampede
The Cameroon senior men’s national team, the Indomitable Lions have jointly donated the sum of 50,000 million FCFA to victims of the stampede that happened at the Olembe Stadium on January 24, 2021, when Cameroon played with Comoros.
According to the State broadcaster CRTV, the players will be handing in the financial contributions from their compensations and match bonuses gotten so far as they have reached the semi-finals of the competition.
The assistance is expected to go a long way in helping give proper medical care to some of the victims who survived the tragic incident.
A few days back, the Indomitable lions also issued a statement through their team captain Vincent Aboubakar extending their sympathies to the survivors and also extending their heartfelt condolences to the families of the 8 Cameroonians who perished in the incident.
The Olembe stampede led to the death of 8 persons and 38 others were injured. Matches were suspended at the stadium and an investigation was opened by CAF to establish what exactly led to the unfortunate incident. The suspension has however been lifted and measures have been put in place to ensure that a stampede does not happen again. The final of Total Energies AFCON 2021 will take place at the stadium on Feb 6, 2022.
