Buhari Reacts to the Death of Manchester United Fans in Calabar

President Muhammadu Buhari on Friday expressed shock over the event that took the lives of several Nigerians at a football viewing centre in Calabar, Cross River State, Thursday night.

A number of football fans died while watching the Manchester United vs Anderlecht Europa league clash yesterday night with several fans of the English club in attendance.

In a statement by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Publicity, Garba Shehu, the President commiserated with the government and people of Cross River State, and football fans nationwide over the incident.

Buhari also commended the state government for the prompt action in setting up a commission of inquiry into the incident, and its offer of assistance to the victims and their families.

The statement read, “The President offers his deepest condolences to the family and friends of the mostly young victims, whose sudden demise is a big blow not only to their families, but also to the football-loving nation.

“He prays that God Almighty will grant the souls of the departed eternal rest and comfort all who mourn their irreparable loss.”
