PHCN high tension wire electrocute 7 people in Ibadan

Tragedy struck at the Apata market in Ibadan yesterday when seven persons, including a pregnant woman and a nursing mother, were instantly killed when a live high tension power cable of the Power Holding Company of Nigeria (PHCN) suddenly cut off and fell on traders at the ever busy market.

 
The incident, which occurred at about 7am, affected mostly vegetables vendors as they were busy transacting their business at the popular Agbekoja section of the market.
Eyewitness identified the pregnant woman as Tawa and that her mother who was also standing by was a victim of the dawn electrocution.
However, a one-year-old baby boy was rescued alive from the scene of the incident while the baby’s mother, whose identify could not be immediately ascertained was not as lucky as she died following the impact of the live cable which fell directly on her. Good Samaritans rescued the infant unhurt from the back of his electrocuted mother who passed on immediately after the shock.
Many other traders at the spot sustained injuries and were rushed to nearby hospitals for medical attention.

Our country is one hell of a place to live in. If maintenance work were done from time to time on those poles, little little faults would have been discovered. But no, we like to wait till someone dies before we do the necessary thing. May their souls rest in peace.

Not to sound nasty but where the traders trading on the road?

These are one of the reasons the government wants traders off the road.

Tomorrow it might be a trailer

I know it's hard, but change happens when the people (not the government) want to change! Is it impossible for these traders to join hand and rent a safe indoor location were they can sell their goods? I know poverty makes things difficult, but unity can produce big changes. May their soul R.I.P.

Its just unbecoming lately with all these mishaps in Nigeria. Who do things had to crash on people. Recently was Dana aircraft landing on residential homes. Now its a PHCN pole landing on traders shops. This is so sad. Father Lord please have mercy on us and not wipe out our generation this way. I'm sad and my eyes are filled with tears. May the lost souls RIP and give their families the fortitude to bear the losses. God dey!!!
