  1. SO PAINFUL! I WAS there this morning to see for myself. When Nigerians are told not to erect any structure under high tension cables, some think it is witch-hunting. This tragic incident could have been avoided.

    AGAIN, NEPA IS about the most-corrupt instruction in Nigeria. When I saw the kind of worn-out wires and cut-and-join cables hanging on the poles, I asked myself why the wires would not cut. I wonder when we will ever get it right in this country.

  2. 30 Biafran has gone just like that, is that people start avoiding public places, drink in your house, eat in your house and watch in your house, also sleep in your house, drive your own car or bike, take your family as best friend and live for God

  3. what a disaster..immediate investigation is neeeded here.break monopoly of cable company business the way we did in mobile telecomms.That will reduce such casualities of unforseen fights,violence and horrible acts in beer parlors and soccer viewing centers.this will make people stay indoors and watch the games.this is pathetic.rip to the dead
