Electric Cable Thief “Bent the Knee” After Getting Himself Electrocuted in Surulere, Lagos

As shared in a popular forum, a cable thief was electrocuted last night after a second attempt to steal electric cables from a transformer in Surulere, Lagos State.

Uptownerd gathered that the gang had earlier stolen the transformer’s cables, plunging the whole area into darkness. It was finally replaced by the Electric Distribution Company who came yesterday and fixed it.

Unfortunately, the cable thieves allegedly came back again almost instantly to do what they know how to do best. It is reported that they probably assumed that the cables were yet to be fixed, thinking it was going to be an easy job. But, reality can be quite disappointing as it turned out.

One of the gang members paid the ultimate price for their miscalculation, and was forced to bend the knee during the electrocuting process as the pictures show.

The crime scene is currently sealed off, and the body is yet to be released to his people as at the time of writing this report.
