The unfortunate incident happened in Elele Kingdom, a community in the Ikwerre Local Government Area of the State, Naija News understands.
It was reported that Mrs Florence had arrived at the distribution venue to get her own share of the Coronavirus palliative, but unfortunately, she was trampled upon by some persons due to the stampede.
Reacting to the unfortunate event, a counsellor representing Elele ward, Emmanuel Amadi, revealed that the woman died at the University of Port Harcourt Teaching Hospital where she was quickly taken to for treatment after she was trampled upon.
Amadi, however, faulted the claims that the COVID-19 palliative distribution process was not well managed.
