More than 80 football fans were watching Manchester United’s’ 2-1 win over Anderlecht in a viewing centre in Calabar (the capital of Cross Rivers State in Southeast Nigeria) last week when a live high-tension electricity cable fell on top of the viewing center venue and started its electrocution process.
