    Suspected vandal electrocuted while trying to steal electric cable from transformer

    electrocuted

     

    On Eric Moore Road in the Surulere region of Lagos State, a suspected thief was electrocuted while reportedly vandalizing a high tension electrical armoured line from a transformer.

    When the incident occurred on Tuesday, October 5, the unidentified suspect and his gang members sneaked into the transformer house to steal cables, according to reports.

    According to a local who spoke to Punch on the condition of anonymity, the gang had already stolen the transformer cable around a week ago, leaving the town in the dark.

    The wire was restored by the Eko Electricity Distribution Firm, but the hoodlums returned to vandalize it, believing that the distribution company had failed to connect it to the power source.

    “The residents of Eric Moore woke up on Tuesday to discover the remains of an electrocuted young man trying to steal a high tension electrical armoured cable. The unscrupulous elements stole the transformer cable about a week ago and the electric distribution company came around on Tuesday to replace it,” the resident said.

    “The suspected thieves thought that the cable had not been connected to the power source yet and came back on Tuesday night to vandalise the newly replaced cable before one of them was electrocuted, while the others escaped. The body of the victim was still there as of 4 pm on Wednesday.”

    A spokesperson for the Eko Electricity Distribution Company, Godwin Idemudia, confirmed the incident.

    “This is what we have been telling the public to help us; say something when you see something. Vandals are wreaking havoc on our network. It has increased in the last two months plus.” Idemudia said.

    Confirming the incident, the spokesperson of the Lagos State Police Command, Adekunle Ajisebutu, said the corpse had been removed by officers of the Lagos State Environmental Health Monitoring Unit and deposited in a morgue.

    “The CP, Hakeem Odumosu, has ordered that investigation should be carried out, while he warns criminals against vandalising public facilities,” he added.
