A claimed staff of Abuja Electricity Distribution Company, AEDC, one Yakubu Alhassan was electrocuted in Anagada community, a surburb in Abuja while trying to fix a faulty fuse in a transformer.
The deceased was popularly called Yakubu NEPA whom the AEDC claimed through it’s Public Relations Officer, Fadipe Oyebode, that the deceased was neither a staff, service provider nor contractor of AEDC.
One of the resident of the area, Ibrahim Yahaya said;
Actually the transformer which supplies electricity to Anagada sometimes trip off whenever there is electricity due to overload and in that process, the fuse pulls out. So the man now decided to go and fix the fuse. Anytime the light trips off, he is the one that goes there to fix the fuse on the transformer.
He maintained that, the deceased gained illegal and unauthorized access to the 500KVA distribution substation for reasons best known to him.
The circumstances surrounding the death are still unknown as several conflicting versions have been obtained – but he appears to have been electrocuted as facts revealed that his undertakers removed him from the substation and hurriedly buried him. Also, there is no medical report showing the cause of the deceased death, while the persons who removed the body of the deceased from the scene did not report the incident at the Nigeria Police.
Taking to facebook to mourn the deceased’s death, Ahmed Kabeer said that Yakubu served Anagada community as a volunteer electrician.
It’s very sad and painful to announce the death of Yakubu #NEPA a prominent person that serve Anagada community as a volunteer of electrification which he died as a result of putting fuse to prevent the overloading of a electrical circuit in our transformer which is situated at LEA PRIMARY SCHOOL ANAGADA.
May his gentle soul rest in perfect peace
