Chris One Enugu



A 55- year- old woman and her daughter have died as a result of an electrical accident, which occurred due to wire snap.

The incident occurred at St Peter Clavers Junction, Nnewichi, Nnewi, Anambra state.



The management of Enugu Electrical Distribution Company (EEDC) in a statement by the Head of Communication, EEDC, Emeka Ezeh, described the incident as unfortunate.

The management has equally conveyed its condolences to the family of the victims during a condolence visit to the family last by representatives of the company led by the Head of Health, Safety & Environment, Francis Iwu.

According to Ezeh, this situation would not have occurred if people adhered to all the publicity and sensitisation efforts by the company on the hazards of erecting structures, trading or carrying out business activities under the power line Right-of-Way.

“In this very incident that occurred in Anambra, the victim put up a makeshift shop made of a metallic container, directly under the High Tension (HT) line, which was why the victims were caught up and electrocuted.

“The fact is that we wouldn’t have lost these lives if they were not under the power line,” Ezeh lamented.

He explaind that the power line Right-of-way is the mapped out corridor for Distribution and Transmission power lines and as a precautionary safety measure, these mandatory clearance levels are to be observed and adhered to by members of the public when putting up structures.
