ESP unit burnt

Good day All,
I have a 2003 Alfa Romeo 147 Selespeed, a few week ago my worker was cleaning it and for some strange reason decided to play the stereo, apparently after a while of playing he notice some smoke coming out from the front so he disconnected the battery. Now here is the problem, I checked the front from where the burning could have been and I noticed that the connector in a unit labelled ESP had melted, the wires too... I brought in someone to check it and he said it was the ABS unit, I tried to drive the car but it wasn't displaying what gears I had engaged or whether in Neutral and I think it only went into 1st and 2nd and made a very strange noise and reaction when engaging. Can someone PLEASE help me understand what happen and what that unit is exactly... PLEASE! (I've attached pictures of the unit and connector)
