Dave Okumu – a serious accident onstage in Lagos

Nigerian Entertainment Today is reporting that Dave Okumu suffered electrocution onstage at the M-U-S-O-N Centre in Lagos last Thursday 17th, at a concert organized by the British Council:

A subsequent statement from the British Council states: “‘David Okumu of British band, The Invisible is doing well, after he suffered an electric shock at our concert in Lagos yesterday. David suffered a sprain from the fall in the aftermath of the accident and was rushed to the hospital immediately’” The original story as reported sounds a lot more terrifying than that, and will rightly cause concern.

UPDATES 31st MAY. 1) The British Council has issued, and sent in a revised statement as follows:

On 17 May at an event in Lagos, Nigeria, Dave Okumu from the band The Invisible received an electric shock, suffering serious injury. After receiving medical attention in Nigeria, David returned to the UK where he remains in hospital undergoing treatment. The Invisible have had to cancel all forthcoming engagements.

Our primary concern is for David Okumu, and the band’s well-being, and we wish him the best for a speedy recovery.
