Electricity cable vandal electrocuted in Kano

Jamilu Adamu, a 35-year-old man, was electrocuted at Kawon Maigari Hotoro area of Kano state, while trying to allegedly vandalise a fenced public transformer.

Mohammed Kandi, spokesman of Kano Electricity Distribution Company (KEDCO), disclosed this in a statement issued on Wednesday.

He said the deceased was found dead with some tools, including sizes 17 and 20 ring and flat spanner in his possession.

Kandi also quoted Aminu Abubakar, the firm’s head of health safety and environment (HSE) as saying, as of the time the police evacuated the corpse, one of the HV Bushings of the Transformer was loosened from the base.

Abubakar said with that, it was clear that Adamu had the intention to vandalise the transformer by removing the “bushings, and possibly the armored cable, as well”.

“Judging by the whitish burn on his palm and a huge open gash on his left arm, it is highly likely that power was restored while he was operating, resulting in electric shock, and the ceramic insulator of the bushing shattering to cause the wound on his arm,” he said.
