Lagos State House of Assembly Speaker, Mudashiru Obasa, has called on the executive arm of government in the state to come up with a regulation that would prevent such devastating occurrence for future purposes.
The Honorable Speaker made the call during Plenary yesterday, commiserated with the families of the deceased, including the demise of other political leaders in the country.
A high-tension cable had fallen on a shop, where football fans were watching a UEFA Europa league quarter-final match between Manchester United and Anderlecht and electrocuted them to death.
He said: “The incident that happened in Calabar could happen even in Lagos. People go to viewing centres without regulation, it is for us to learn from it and those who are in-charge in Lagos State should do something so that we don’t witness such in the state,” the Speaker said.
