The high-tension wire that fell on a building in Calabar killed a 100 level student of mechanical engineering of the Cross River state University of Technology (CRUTECH), Inyang David and a nursing mother at 14 Adak Uko street on Monday night.

The landlord of the building, Mr Obo said the cable had always been falling in the  past but never on the roof. He said this was the first time it had fell on the roof causing the fire that set the building ablaze and killed two people.

He added that the affected building had total of 12 tenants and since the accident, nobody from the fire service department nor the Port Harcourt Electricity Distribution Company had shown up.

A friend of the deceased, Mr Tolale Prince Harmony stated that the cable had been falling in the past and the PHEDC had been approved several time to do something about it but they kept referring them to the office in Port Harcourt.

"They  kept directing the people to Port Harcourt and i am wondering what does the office in Port Harcourt has to do with this? During the inferno, they called the fire service and they said, no water, no imprest, nothing to run.
I don't understand this, the cable fell on the  building and caused a fire that  killed Inyang David and a lady who just gave birth and did child dedication just two Sunday ago"
