A PHCN worker who was undertaking illegal reconnection of power for a client, has been electrocuted to death.
A unidentified staff of the Power Holding Company of Nigeria (PHCN), was electrocuted last night when he tried to undertake the illegal reconnection of power for a client without using protective gloves.
The unfortunate incident which many resident of Asaba, the capital of Delta State, describe as retributive justice, according to Linda Ikeji, happened when the PHCN worker was on the electric pole trying to join wires together.
At the time, there was no power but suddenly, electricity was restored and the poor guy was electrocuted on the spot.
His shouts for help brought out the residents but he had already died before help could come his way.
The sad thing is that the man, according to those who knew him, was supposed to get married next week.
