Kabiru Ismaila, a suspected vandal, has been electrocuted while allegedly stealing a transformer cable in the Adamo area of Ikorodu, Lagos State.

According to PUNCH Metro, it was gathered that Ismaila led some hoodlums to Owu Ikosi Street in Agbowa to steal the transformer jumper cable, which supplied power to the community.

While vandalising the transformer, he was said to have been electrocuted.

A resident, who identified himself as Seun, said other members of the gang fled the scene after Ismaila gave up the ghost.

He said, “Some hoodlums came to vandalise the transformer. As they cut the jumper cable, one of them became electrocuted; others quickly ran away. The matter was reported to the police. In the course of investigation, they found a jumper cable in a house around the place.”

Our correspondent learnt that eight suspects were arrested in connection with the incident.

One of them, Isiaku Ibrahim, 32, denied involvement in the act, adding that he did know Ismaila.

He said, “I don’t know why I was arrested and I don’t know the person that died. We were inside the room sleeping and not aware of what was going on when the person that did the operation was electrocuted. So, they entered our room, tore our clothes and arrested us.”

He said, “We have realised that the rate of vandalism on our network is becoming alarming. We have been collaborating with security agencies to ensure that we bring all these vandals to justice, but we are encouraging residents of various communities to put extra measures in place to safeguard these assets.

“This is because the resultant effects always affect them and the replacement of these vandalised transformers also derails our plan because funds that we are supposed to use for upgrading our facilities will be used to replace stolen cables and other assets.”
