See the Face of Suspected Thief Electrocuted to Death by Barbed Wire in Kogi State (Photos)

Nemesis caught up with a suspected thief who got electrocuted by barbed wire while trying to jump over the fence to rob a house in Lokoja, Kogi state.

A suspected burglar was on Friday, electrocuted while attempting to scale the fence into his target’s compound at the Zone 8 area of Lokoja, the Kogi State capital.

The tragic incident reportedly took residents by surprise as they were said to have been alerted to the body stuck to an electrified fence.

While speaking to a correspondent, an eyewitness said that the suspected burglar climbed the fence under the cover of darkness at around 2am, as there was no power supply at the time.

The source said power was restored while the suspect was trying to scale the fence and got electrocuted in the process.

Although the suspect’s name and age could not be ascertained as of the time of filing this report, residents say he looked like one in his thirties.

Efforts to speak with the state police command for confirmation, however, proved abortive.

Calls made to the mobile phone of the state Police Public Relations Officer, William Aya, rang out and he didn’t reply a text message sent to him by our correspondent.
