Default Nigerian Reds down - 7 die whilst watching the match 30 electrocuted



More than 30 Manchester United fans in Nigeria have been electrocuted watching the club's Europa League clash, it has been reported.
Authorities in the African nation have described the loss as tragic and horrifying after the disaster at a viewing centre in Calabar on Thursday.
Local media reported no fewer than 30 fans died watching the match against Anderlecht yesterday after an issue with a high tension cable.
Witnesses have described how they saw a flash of light from a transformer which sent fans scurrying, packing them together before a cable fell on them.
Speaking in broken English, one witness told local television: "I was sitting at the front seats when I saw the reflection form the transformer.
"I was the first person to run outside.
"Everybody saw the reflection of the light from the transformer.
"Everybody was running to go out from the door.
"As they were running, everybody was jam-packing themselves. Because the high tension (cable) fall on top, (it) contacted everybody there."
The government has promised to investigate the incident, Nan reports.
