A yet-to-be-identified man was electrocuted while attempting to steal an armoured cable from a transformer in the Mgboaba/NTA axis of Obio/Akpor Local Government Area of Rivers State.

It was gathered that the incident happened at about 3 am on Wednesday, May 29, 2024, when power was restored.

An eyewitness said the man was severely burnt.

“It was around 3 am when the transformer sparked with a loud sound. We thought it was the normal sound we hear sometimes. But in the morning when I was going to work, we heard that somebody that went to cut armoured cable died inside the transformer. So personally I and some people went there and we saw the dead body. All his body was burnt like Charcoal," the source told Punch.

Another eyewitness who gave his name as Chika said the man is known within the area.

“He used to sell water to people around this area.”

The corpse was removed by the police and officials of the Port Harcourt Electricity Distributor Company after residents of the area alerted them of the incident.
