THERE was pandemonium at Satellite neighbourhood/NTA Road in Ado-Ekiti, the Ekiti State capital, on Wednesday, as a man identified as Mr Samuel Job Isaac was electro-cuted while working on an electrical fault in the area.


The body of Isaac dangling from the electricity pole.

Isaac, who died on the spot, was said to be a worker of the Power Holding Company of Nigeria (PHCN).

The deceased, said to be an Electrical/Electro-nics Engineering  gra-duate of the Osun State College of Technology, Esa Oke, allegedly met his death when a high tension cable landed on him while trying to repair a fault on the electrical pole.

His body, which was badly burnt, was said to have been deposited at the morgue of Ekiti State University Teaching Hospital (EKSUTH), Ado-Ekiti.

The public relations officer of the Ekiti PHCN district, Mr Kayode Brown, said the victim was working on the feeder to detect fault on the high tension, which had caused power outage  in the area.

He said Isaac was employed about three years ago and had cognate experience to handle such electrical work, adding that the victim might have died of what he called “back-feed” on the high tension.

Chairman of Ado Local Government Area of the state, Mr Sunday Ibitoye, who visited the scene of the incident, expressed shock about the incident.

They don't normally cut the power when it's a small job,
so as not to interrupt the supply to customers...Even so it's sad.
