Tragedy As Man Is Electrocuted While Trying To Steal Cables

On Wednesday, residents of Dawaki area of Bwari Area council were left in shock after they woke to find a young man electrocuted on an electric pole.

They had gathered in large numbers and officials of the Abuja Electricity Distribution Company (AEDC) were available to help remove the electrocuted man from the poll. It was alleged that the man was trying to steal cables from the transformer.

Some onlookers claimed that cables from transformers are sold at very exorbitant prices which have made it a lucrative business for criminals to keep vandalizing public facilities.

The police were also at the scene and investigation has commenced on the incident.

The victim probably committed the crime at midnight when there was a power outage. He had climbed the pole and even succeeded in removing some cables when power was restored.
