#ElectionPalaver: See the total Number of people who died foolishly while Celebrating Buhari's Victory

Buhari supporters have been celebrating the results out on the streets 

                     One hundred people are reported to have died since Tuesday in exuberant celebrations to mark the victory of Gen. Muhammadu Buhari in last weekend’s presidential elections as his supporters took to the streets across the country Nigerian Watch reports.
                     On Tuesday March 31, Gen. Buhari of the All Progressives Congress (APC) was named the winner of Nigeria’s presidential elections. As soon as he was declared the winner, the general’s supporters took to the streets across the country with all sorts of bizarre stunts, some of which were fatal.
Some of the worst affected states
included Adamawa, Plateau, Kaduna, Sokoto, Kano and Edo, while in Rivers State, jubilant youths were seen along Omerelu/Elele/Port Harcourt Road, displaying different kinds of guns and other dangerous weapons, shooting into the air and chanting heroic songs. Eye witnesses say many of the victims were either hit by a moving vehicles making stunt displays or lost their footing while watching the activities.
According to eyewitness reports, 17 victims died in Kano, 4 died in Abuja, 3 in Kontagora, Niger State and 1 in Makurdi, the Benue State capital, while several others sustained injuries. Eyewitness, Ali Sufi of Naibawa Quarters said 3 people were crushed to death at Naibawa U-turn, when a man in a Toyota Camry car lost control and rammed into those celebrating.
Sufi added that one Sabo Ali, an ad-hoc staff of communications giant, Etisalat, lost his life alongside his friend when a reckless driver knocked them down at Ungwa Uku end of Zaria Road within Kano metropolis. Another resident of Naibawa quarters, Ibrahim Dogo, said that two teenagers were crushed to death along Zaria Road by a crazy driver.
Kano State Police Command spokesman Magaji Majia, said: “We discovered seven dead bodies of unknown persons on the streets after the celebration and investigations has commenced on how and why it happened.” He added that the development had forced the command to sponsor radio jingles to sensitize the city dwellers on how to go about the victory dance.
Gen. Buhari has urged his supporters across the country to remain calm and celebrate responsibly. In General Buhari’s home town of Daura in Katsina State, motorbike riders and car drivers pulled stunts, sending plumes of dust into the air, enveloping the local ruler’s palace overlooking the square.
Lawan Shuaibu, a 29-year-old bus driver, said, “Our joy is indescribable as a result of this historic victory of Muhammadu Buhari, which is why we are on the streets for the second day of celebration.”
In contrast, the mood was depressing in President Jonathan’s hometown of Otuoke in Bayelsa State as people were pensive as they reflected on his defeat. Businesses reported sluggish trade as groups of people in twos or threes discussed the gripping election, which General Buhari won by 2.75m votes, becoming the first challenger to beat a sitting president win in Nigeria’s history.
Gen. Muhammadu Buhari was declared the winner of Nigeria’s presidential elections, by the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) defeating the incumbent President Goodluck Jonathan by 2.57 million votes.
Since the announcement by INEC there have been reported cases of people dyeing while celebrating Buhari’s victory across the country .
