Delta Transformer Vandal Dies Of Electrocution


In what will come across as a really startling development, a suspected electric cable vandal has been killed.

The vandal was electrocuted in Ika North East Local Government Area of Delta State.

The incident happened about 3:00am on Saturday, July 8, 2023, at Ogbe Quarters in Ute-Okpu Kingdom. 

Residents of the agrarian community woke up to discover a lifeless body dangling from a twin electric pole located at a 33 KVA transformer by the popular Afor market, Ute- Okpu.

The residents were reportedly alerted by a young boy who sighted the body while on his way to the next village.

A resident, who simply gave his name as John, said but for the boy, nobody was aware that something was amiss.

“We were alerted by a young boy who was going to the next village. We never knew that somebody was hanging up there. We didn’t go anywhere today because of the rainfall. Even though we came out to our frontages, we did not notice the lifeless body of the young man hanging there,”

"The lifeless body is holding an electric cable in his hands, which means that he was cutting the cable. For some time now, we didn’t have power supply, but BEDC brought light around 3:00 a.m today. Well, only God knows what happened. We have alerted the vigilante in this area and we are waiting for them to bring down the corpse,” he concluded.

Another resident, who preferred anonymity, decried the sad incident, but blamed it on the desire to get rich quickly. 

As you can see, he is holding the cable in his hand up there which means that he was there to vandalize the cable. Our youths don’t want to work but want to make money. Nobody can identify the corpse because he is up there. Until they bring him down, we won’t know whether he is from here or from any of the neighbouring villages,” he noted.
