A young man suspected to be a electric cable thief electrocuted to death in Lagos state.
According to reports, the suspect was electrocuted in Surulere area of the state.
An eyewitness account reveals that some unscrupulous elements stole the transformer cable about a week ago.
However, the Electric Distribution Company came around yesterday to replace the stolen cable but suspected thieves thought the cable had not been connected yet.
The source said the thieves came back last night to purloin the newly replaced cable before one of them was made to “bend the knee” while others fled.
The eyewitness said:
“The deceased family came around to mourn the butt-raising body and later left for the fear of armed forces harassment.”
