English Premier League club, Manchester United is set to honour the victims of electrocution in southern Nigerian town of Calabar who died last week while watching a match between the English team and Anderlecht.

The team announced that their players will wear black armbands during their English Premier League match against Swansea City on Sunday at the Old Trafford.

“The #MUFC players will wear black armbands on Sunday in memory of the seven fans who lost their lives recently in Calabar, Nigeria,” the team tweeted.

At least seven football fans died when high tension cables from a nearby transformer fell on a local football viewing centre built with zinc roofing sheets.

Immediately after the incident, Manchester United and FIFA sympathized with the people of Nigeria.
