Breaking: 30 Die Watching Man. U Europa Match At Football Viewing Center In Calabar

The Punch reports that about 30 persons have been electrocuted while watching yesterday’s (Thursday) evening Europa League football between Manchester United and Anderlecht in Calabar, Cross River State.

 

A survivor told a correspondent of The Punch that a transformer near the viewing centre located in the Iyang-Esu area of the Calabar Municipal Local Government Area exploded during the match and this caused a high-tension cable to drop on the viewing centre.
