Young transformer vandal electrocuted

A 35-year-old man, Jamilu Adamu, was on Wednesday electrocuted at Kawon Maigari, Hotoro Area of Kano, Kano State while trying to vandalize a fenced-electricity transformer.
The Public Relations Officer of Kano Electricity Distribution Company (KEDCO), Mohammed Kandi, confirmed this in a statement he released to newsmen on Thursday in Kano.
KEDCO spokesman said that the deceased was found dead with some tools that include: Sizes 17 and 20 rings and flat spanner by his side.
The statement also quoted Mr. Aminu Abubakar, Head of Health Safety and Environment (HSE) of KEDCO as saying that the vandal’s corpse had been evacuated by the police.
“At the time the police evacuated the corpse, one of the HV bushings of the transformer had been loosened from the base.
“This is an indication that the intention of the deceased was to vandalize the transformer by removing the bushings, and possibly the armoured cable,” he said in the statement.
Abubakar said in the statement that the deceased was seen loitering around the substation area three days before the incident.
“When he was approached, he told residents that he was there to visit his relative,” he said.
