Suspected vandal electrocuted while attacking EEDC property

The lifeless body of a yet to be identified vandal suspect was found within the space of a distribution transformer belonging to the Enugu Electricity Distribution Company PLC (EEDC) in the early hours of Friday, June 28, 2024.

The unfortunate incident happened around Missionary Avenue, Coal Camp, Enugu, according to a statement from the electricity distribution company.

“From all indications, it is presumed that power supply must have been restored while the deceased was cutting the armoured cables, which resulted in him being electrocuted,” the statement reads.

The Head of Corporate Communications, EEDC, Emeka Ezeh, who made this known in a release issued to newsmen described the incident as tragic and very unfortunate.

Ezeh lamented the increasing rate at which vandals attack electricity installations within EEDC’s network daily. This is a development that has adversely impacted not just the quality of service to its customers but also its revenue.

“It is a battle we all have to fight collectively because once these transformers are vandalised, customers who are served by the installation will be greatly affected,” Ezeh said.

He therefore appealed to customers to join hands with the company to ensure that these facilities within their neighbourhoods are protected.
