Members of the Association of Cross River Online Journalists (ACROJ) have condoled with the victims of the viewing center tragedy that occurred in Calabar recently.
The group made the condolence in a press release signed by its Acting Chairman and Secretary, Hope Obeten and Archibong Jeremiah respectively and made available to our newsroom.
According to ACROJ, “It’s sad that this has happened with 8 lives lost and many critically injured. We pray that those who died rest in the bosom of the Lord and those injured get speedy recovery”.
The group of online journalists stated clearly that the incident was a consequence of human error, therefore, all authorities concerned should be investigated and those found guilty of negligence should be speedily brought to book.
The group also urged the Government not to relent on its promise of demolishing all structures along power lines and appreciate the Cross River State government for its commitment to footing the medical bills of the victims.
