At least seven people were killed in southern Nigeria on Thursday night when an electric cable fell on a house where soccer fans gathered to view a match on TV.

United will visit the Spanish side for the first-leg of their encounter on March 4, before welcoming them back to Old Trafford the following week.

The condolence message was not posted on the club's website.

It has been reported that scores of fans managed to escape.

President Muhammadu Buhari sent his condolences on Friday, as did Manchester United on its Twitter account.

While the authorities have offered a conservative estimate regarding the loss of life, the News Agency of Nigeria reported that there had been over 30 deaths.

A survivor, in an interview with journalists according to the report on Channels Television, revealed that a transformer near the viewing centre located in the Inyang-Esu area of Calabar Municipal Local Government Area, exploded during the match.

Police reportedly said: "Around 10pm we were called that an incident that has happened so immediately our men went there".

A high tension wire snapped and dropped on the viewing centre which was made of zinc.

Ayade, according to a statement signed by his Senior Special Assistant on Media and Chief Press, Christian Ita, said the incident marks a dark chapter in the life of the state.

English football has a large and passionate following in Nigeria.

"At this point in time, it is sad to know that the victims lost their lives at a viewing centre where they usually converge, at their leisure time to watch their matches".
