Tragedy as two are electrocuted in Ibadan


Tragedy struck in Ibadan, Oyo state south west Nigeria, as a commercial motorcyclist, Oladeji Olatunji, and a food vendor, Mrs Kemi Adegoke,  were electrocuted late Saturday evening.

Witnesses told that the incident occurred at about 4p.m on Christmas Day at Iwo Road in Ibadan when the commercial motorcyclist was allegedly  negotiating fares for a trip with a woman.

It was learnt that they had not concluded their negotiation when an electricity wire suddenly fell on them, killing them immediately.

The deceased food vendors, according eyewitnesses, was in Iwo Road to collect N1,000 balance of food she had sold on credit to a transporter at Iwo Road in the morning.

A witness who was identified only as Adegoke said: “That woman was a food vendor. I heard she was in the area to collect money for food a transporter bought from her in the morning. In fact, the N1,000 was in her hand when she got electrocuted. Men of the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) in the state were the ones that evacuated their corpses.”

The Sector Commander of FRSC in the state, Mrs Uche Chukwurah, confirmed the incident to journalists in Ibadan on Saturday.

Meanwhile, the Ibadan Electricity Distribution Company (IBEDC) on Saturday commiserated with the families of the two persons that were electrocuted.

The commiseration was contained in a statement signed by the IBEDC’s Chief Operating Officer, Mr. John Ayodele. According to IBEDC, the incident happened on Iwo-Adogba road in Ibadan at about 4 pm on Friday.

His words: “We are currently working with families of the deceased at this difficult period to help provide some measure of succour. Investigations have begun to ascertain the facts of the case, while all necessary protocols and reports to the regulatory authorities have been initiated. Our team of engineers are already carrying out safety routine maintenance to forestall such occurrences in future.”
