High Tension Wire Falls On Roof Of Football Viewing Centre Killing Over 50 People....

A high tension wire fell on the roof of a football viewing center in Nyakassang, Atimbo area in Calabar, Cross River State and Over 50 people have been rushed to the University of Calabar Teaching Hospital with a large number feared dead. 



The incident happened at about 8 pm on Thursday. Stella Dimoko Korkus  Blog visitor eye witness report says ''there is so much tears in the area as most of the victims just stay around here. All we heard was a loud explosion coming from a transformer located in a junction wall called first transformer and the next thing was wailing and crying coming from relatives of the people who were at the viewing centre. the match was a Manchester united match. Can't really confirm the number of people dead yet''.

I must comment syndrome, that's what you're suffering from. 50 people rushed to the hospital is now interpreted as 50 people dead for you, innit? BTW, about 30 have been confirmed dead this morning.

Broomstick said...

Little wonder you're seen as lacking the most basic of sense. It is their fault that substandard cables were used. It is also their fault that although some can/could have watched same match at home, they didn't probably because there was a blackout. In your limited mind, it is also their fault for having the effrontery to go out and die. My prayer for you is that you live long and prosper so that you'll at least get a little sense when you're old. People freaking lost their lives, dummy!

Pipi Lee said...

10:18...absolutely nothing😐😐😐😐

Omolewa...thank you.

omolewa, 10:50...thank you. God forbid that I laugh at people's misfortune. God forbid!

I am pained not because I know anybody that's involved(haven't gone there yet, but I'm hopeful) but because lives have been lost and most likely through human negligence. Until I see the place for myself, I will only postulate that maybe the viewing center was built with no regard for the rules abi law that demands some distance both from the road and from the poles(especially those carrying the high tension cables) OR the quality of cables and those other(forgive my lack of knowledge) coils and nuts was/is poor. One thing I'm sure of, though, is that the people currently employed with the power company have little or no knowledge of the practical aspect of the job. Then the Nigerian factor comes in too. There is no maintenance culture. The transformer supplying light to my area is down and out just because the person/people saddled with the responsibility of putting oil in it neglected to do so. We've been without light for the past one month, with no end to the suffering in sight. Rather than come online to make insensitive comments about witches, can we start holding people accountable for their neglect? The person in charge of my area was queried after we mounted pressure and the man who had requisitioned the oil but sold it without doing the needful was fished out and is currently on suspension. We protested and now we're getting positive action. Has that given us a new transformer? No. We're hopeful though that we won't have to contribute money to replace it ourselves. Be the change you want. This "epistle" was triggered by Yori yori's comment. Pardon it's "Abati-length"

It could have been any body. Journey of life.

Don't worry about the length, you made sense. I wonder when we will start holding people accountable for things.

Did you people saying witches and such ask whose job it was to make sure that transformer is ok?

Did you ask whose job it was to make sure buildings were not close by? All I hear in his country is "Gods will" or superstitious things. We better get responsible and stop this nonsense culture of spirituality.

Broomstick said...

Angle? You're being serious? Oh well

Broomstick said...

Stella, a bit of update(I'm outraged in my grief). The viewing center was directly under the high tension junction(i.e where the double poles are linked and all). The building wall is mostly the aluminium(9ja term, zink) and the seats are wooden. Too many things working against that place. I'm just so saddened by the waste
