Nigeria: More than 30 Manchester United killed while watching game

More than 30 supporters are feared to have died after a cable fell on them while they were taking in the Red Devils’ Europa League tie on Thursday. Manchester United have expressed their sorrow at learning that a number of supporters were electrocuted in Nigeria while watching their Europa League game with Anderlecht.

The supporters in question were taking in the continental contest in the city of Calabar, with up to 30 people feared to have died as a result of an electrical cable falling onto them.

United have sent their sympathies to those caught up in the tragedy, with the incident casting a shadow over a 2-1 extra-time victory for Jose Mourinho’s side at Old Trafford. Police said the incident was the result of an issue with an electrical transformer at the viewing centre in which the fans had gathered.

While the authorities have offered a conservative estimate regarding the loss of life, the News Agency of Nigeria reported that there had been over 30 deaths.
