More photos from the scene where over 30 football fans got electrocuted in calabar

Last night in Calabar, over 20 football fans watching the  UEFA Europa League quarter-final match between Manchester United and Anderlecht lost their lives after they got electrocuted when a transformer close to the viewing centre fell and a cable dropped on the zinc of the building.



The Cross River state governor, Ben Ayade in statement signed by the Senior Special Assistant on Media and Chief Press, Mr Christian Ita, sympathized with the family of those who lost their lives saying the incident marks a dark chapter in the life of the state. He promised to look into the cause of the accident in order to prevent a recurrence. 

Electricity authorities, have said it is illegal to construct buildings near high tension cables. More photos after the cut..

The owner of the property must be arrested, investigated and charged for endangering lives and manslaughter.
