Over 30 people are feared dead at a football viewing centre in Calabar, the Cross River State capital after being electrocuted by a high tension cable that reportedly fell on them.

More than 30 persons are feared dead at a football viewing center in Calabar after being electrocuted by a high tension cable that fell on the viewing center whilst they were all inside.

The football fans are said to have gathered at the centre to watch a UEFA Europa League quarter-final match between Manchester United and Anderlecht on satellite tv.

A witness, who said he was the first to run out of the viewing centre, said that the victims died as a result of probable contact between the roof of the building and the cable that fell on it.
