EEDC staff electrocuted while carrying out an illegal operation in Onitsha, Anambra.
The man, identified as Morris Nonyia who works with Enugu Electricity Distribution Company was electrocuted at Ojedi street, Mbah Junction, Onitsha.
According to Emeka Ezeh, the head of Communications EEDC who confirmed the incident, Nonyia was there illegally.
Ezeh said that the deceased had no business being close to the electric wires or poles because his station was with customer service.
“I can confirm to you that the deceased was in an illegal operation when the unfortunate incident happened.
“The job he was carrying out when he met his death was not what he was hired for.
”He is a staff of Key Customer Group (KCG) team, and their function is more of customer relationship management,
and does not in any way entail or warrant meddling with the network, not to talk of climbing the pole
”He was working on power installations in the area when the power supply was suddenly restored, leading to his electrocution.
”It is very unfortunate and sad that he had to lose his life in such a careless manner.”
This was all he revealed on the EEDC staff electrocuted.
