President Julius Maada Bio has reacted on Twitter to the Bo Stadium Disaster

“My heart goes out to all children affected and the families of the kids that sustained injuries in the unfortunate incident at the Bo Stadium today,” the President wrote on his Twitter page.

Earlier this afternoon a railing in the stadium broke and went down with several pupils who were leaning on it at a Pad Distribution ceremony organised by the Office of the First Lady.

Although no deaths has been confirmed several pupils are believed to have been injured.

The injured students are currently receiving treatment at the Government Hospital in Bo City.
