Picture Of Man Electrocuted In Lagos While Stealing PHCN Cable

Residents of the Lonlo area along Iju- Ishaga Road, Lagos woke up on Monday to find a man who had been electrocuted by a transformer belonging to the Ikeja Electricity Distribution Company.
It was learnt that the man, whose names had yet to be known, was electrocuted while he was allegedly trying to remove transformer cables.
He was accused of being a vandal who wanted to steal some cables from the transformer.
A resident, who craved anonymity, said that the man might have come in the night to steal the cables.
She said, “The man is not known here. He might have sneaked to this area at night. It was when we woke up that we found him electrocuted on that spot. The power supply might have been restored while he was in the act. We are still waiting for the government officials to evacuate his body.”
While the crowds gathered at the scene, some policemen and officials of the electricity distribution company arrived and said the man wanted to steal an item from the transformer and was electrocuted in the process.
The Lagos State Police Public Relations Officer, Ngozi Braide, could not be reached for comment
