Stampede At The 02 Arena As Wizkid's Concert Is Sold Out

It was a chaotic scene as music fans forced their way through the security gates to watch Nigerian artiste, Wizkid’s sold-out show.

Gatekeepers News reports that a large crowd without tickets rushed past security guards, smashing security scanners on Sunday, to attend one of Wizkid’s three sold-out concerts.

Venue officials said ‘a number of fans’ entered the venue, regardless of whether or not they had a ticket for Wizkid’s ‘Made In Lagos’ tour.

Footage on social media showed dozens of young people pushing through the lines and storming into the O2 as security guards attempted to push back.

The crowds then knocked over the airport-type security scanners as they barged into the venue.

An O2 Arena spokesman said: “This evening, a breach of the security cordon on the arena entrance occurred and as a result, a number of fans in the queue were able to enter the venue.

“The situation was quickly contained by staff and the incident resolved.”

The O2 said they are reviewing their security procedures and advised fans coming to shows this week to arrive early for security checks.

Sunday’s incident comes three weeks after the deadly crush at rapper Travis Scott’s two-day Astroworld festival in Texas, which claimed 10 lives and left several others injured.
