According to eye witness report, the two young men who are in their early 30s were steel benders who were working on a storey building at the Ahenema Kokoben township when the unfortunate incident occurred. Reports further reveals that the building on which they were working were near an electric pole and unfortunately one of the iron rods came into contact with the electric cable since they were at the top floor of the storey.
The second man upon seeing his colleague shouting for help as he was being electrocuted also came into contact with the rod, resulting in both of them dying instantly.
The dead bodies of the two victims has been taken over by the police department of the area and has been sent to the morgue for autopsy reports.
History has it that that was the third time in two years people has been electrocuted to death at the same Ahenema Kokoben township, with one of the past incidents involving a pregnant woman who died after stepping on an electric cable while raining.
We say rest in peace to the two dead persons and our condolences to their families. Share this sad story to others for caution sake.
