Sacked BEDC Staff Electrocuted In Delta While Doing Illegal Connection by reportnaija(m): 8:02am On Feb 22, 2018

A former staff of the Benin Electricity Distribution Company BEDC, in Agbor, Delta State, who was dismissed in 2009, was, on Tuesday, electrocuted in Agbor. According to reports, the deceased, identified as Monday Ebor, was illegally working on high tension lines when electricity was restored.

Eboh who was wanted by BEDC for his illegal activities which destroyed many transformers, was said to be illegally diverting lines from one feeder to another when power was restored.

A staff of an electricity distribution company has passed away in the life of duty under circumstances that remain sketchy. Locals in Alagbaka, Ondo State wailed as they witnessed the demise of a worker of one of the DISCOs who was fixing a fault before he was electrocuted.

“It’s a sad noon in the Alagbaka area of Ondo State as a PHCN official got electrocuted,” a eye witness said.

It has also been reported in the past that an official of Benin Electricity Distribution Company, BEDC, who has been identified as Kola, was electrocuted to death as he tried to connect wires from an electric pole to a new building, at the Government Reserve Area, GRA, located at Itanla along the Ondo/Akure highway, Ondo State.

The motorcycle of the electrocuted electricity company official, who was reportedly in
charge of the area on behalf of BEDC, was seen packed under a mango tree as officials from the BEDC later arrived the scene to remove his body from the pole.

Confirming the report, Manager of the Ondo Business District of BEDC, Chris Enuamaka, disclosed that Kola was on an illegal duty at the time of the electrocution.

Another unidentified staff of the Power Holding Company of Nigeria (PHCN), was electrocuted when he tried to undertake the illegal reconnection of power for a client without using protective gloves.

The unfortunate incident which many resident of Asaba, the capital of Delta State, describe as retributive justice, according to , happened when the PHCN worker was on the electric pole trying to join wires together.

At the time, there was no power but suddenly, electricity was restored and the poor guy was electrocuted on the spot.
His shouts for help brought out the residents but he had already died before help could come his way.

BEDC should honour him or give his family compensations.
Because despite they sacked him, he remained passionate and dedicated to the job.

Electricity is not a friend of anybody and if one decides to go reckless without the necessary safety kits in place then there is a supreme price to be paid.

These are one but far too numerous sad incidences that occur in Nigeria on a regular basis.

The power sector since its privatisation still carry BACKLOGS OF corrupt officers, untrained hands and impostors all adding to the pressures and challenges we are now facing as far as the power sector is concerned. There is also the issue of purchase of substandard electricity equipment, lack of organised metering and billing, diversions of electricity payment to private account etc

That is why Nigeria as a country can not boost of 50% power supply after over 50 years of Independence from Great Britain.

Countries that started with Nigeria such as Malaysia, Singapore, South Korea, North Korea, India, Pakistan, Brazil have all surpassed the stage that Nigeria is still grappling with.

It is not far-fetched that our main and greatest challenges is the high rate of corruption in Nigeria especially among the political class. Most public officers who are opportune to handle public facilities in trust for the people think it is a bazaar or free gift for them.

It is better they start to change from that mentality and help to support growth and development of Nigeria.

This is #Fake News. The entire story is just too disjointed and this tells you that it was written by an amateur blogger.

An electrocution happened in Agbor, Delta State.


Locals in Alagbaka, a suburb of Akure in Ondo state wailed about his death.

Ondo Business Unit Manager spoke to press.

Please, what type of Fake News reportage is this?
