Suspected vandal electrocuted while trying to steal electric cable from transformer in Lagos

On Eric Moore Road in Surulere, Lagos State, a suspected burglar was electrocuted while reportedly vandalizing a high tension electrical armoured wire from a transformer.

When the incident occurred on Tuesday, October 5, the unidentified suspect and his gang members sneaked into the transformer house to steal cables, according to reports.

According to a local who talked to Punch on the condition of anonymity, the gang had already stolen the transformer cable around a week ago, leaving the town in the dark.

The wire was fixed by the Eko Electricity Distribution Company, but the hoodlums returned to vandalise it, believing that the distribution company had not replaced it.
