Sad­ly — Man elec­tro­cut­ed try­ing to van­dalise elec­tric trans­former

The body of a yet to be iden­ti­fied man was found dan­gling on top of a hang­ing trans­former in Bar­nawa area of Kaduna State.

The man was said to have been elec­tro­cut­ed while attempt­ing to van­dal­ize the trans­former sup­ply­ing elec­tric­i­ty to Bar­nawa High Cost area when his feet touched one of the cables in his attempt to gain bal­ance to cut the line.
Res­i­dents woke up to see the body dan­gling from the trans­former and peo­ple gath­ered to catch a glimpse of the body as ear­ly as 6:30 am.
Some res­i­dents said they heard a loud bang around ear­ly in the morn­ing and the whole area went dark. Kaduna Elec­tric con­firmed the inci­dent. 
“We con­tin­ue to warn that tam­per­ing with elec­tri­cal equip­ment is very dan­ger­ous and could lead to loss of life. It is also one of the rea­sons why steady pow­er sup­ply has been unat­tain­able. Let us work togeth­er to curb the men­ace of van­dal­ism,” said Abdu­laz­iz Abdul­lahi, the head of cor­po­rate affairs divi­sion of the firm.
