It was a shocking Sunday for some residents of Kobape community in Ogun State has the lifeless body of a yet-to-be-identified man has been found on an electricity pole in the community on Sunday morning, November 21.



While some said the man must have climbed the pole to commit suicide others opined that he might have been trying to steal cable when he got electrocuted.

"We woke up this morning to see the corpse of a man on the electricity pole. The death of the man is mysterious. We didn’t know how he died. Maybe, he wanted to commit suicide or he wanted to steal cables. Only God knows,"

In the meantime, the spokesperson of the State Police Command, Abimbola Oyeyemi, who confirmed the incident to newsmen, said that the man had attempted to steal electricity cables.

"The man climbed the pole, possibly he wanted to steal the wires. I don’t think he wanted to commit suicide, because he has cut some of the wires. If he wanted to commit suicide, he only needed to climb the pole and hold the naked wire," the PPRO stated.

"According to the information at my disposal, he has cut some of the wires. Maybe there was sudden power supply when he was cutting the cables,” Oyeyemi said.
