Here is a photo of the survivors which escaped death following the tragedy which saw at least 30 football fans dead after a high tension pole fell on a viewing centre during Manchester United match yesterday in Calabar, Cross River State

Cross River State governor, Professor Ben Ayade has described as tragic and horrifying the loss of several lives at a viewing centre in Calabar, the state capital. A horrified Ayade said it was heartwrenching that the lives of the young men were lost in such a gripping manner through electrocution.

The governor, according to a statement signed by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Chief Press, Mr Christian Ita, said the incident marks a dark chapter in the life of the state.

While commiserating with the families of the victims of the tragedy, the governor promised that the state government will look into the likely cause of the incident with a view to preventing a reccurence.

Congrats to those who made it out alive. RIP to those who couldn't make it. How sad things turns out to be at times...

angry

Who's to blame for this?

Definitely not God, because he gave us common sense for reasoning

How can someone erect a structure close to a high tension pole??

RIP to the dead

Hope Manchester United Fc will send their condolences

Emergency ward University of Calabar Teaching Hospital. I was there some months ago to visit a friend's son. The place was so dirty and oozing with foul smell. One can contract a disease there whilst receiving treatment for another ailment. The government need to look into our public hospitals.

Meanwhile, quick recovery to the survivals of yesterday's tragic incident.

Kai! No enough power supply...even when there is power for few hours, transformers must explode somehow, and high tension wires must cut. I wonder what will happen if we are to have light in some Nigerian communities for 72 hours non-interruption!

RIP to the dead.It also shows the greediness of the viewing center owner who used zinc for his viewing centre when it is close to such power lines.

rip to the dead. See much of the reasons why they always demolish houses built under the tension wires, but some people will be fighting , that where do they want them to go or do their businesses.
