The tragedy occurred when Peter attempted to turn off a control switch at his family house.
Esther Okolie, a corporate affairs operator, sympathising with the family of the deceased said, it was a result of a failed insulator and the shattered insulator led to the high voltage.
Although she further said that it was discovered that Peter’s hand came in contact with a live wire, which was used to illegally extend supplies to another apartment.
A lawyer, Pascal Ofulue, explained that several factors were to be considered in order to ascertain who is liable.
As the family painfully accepted the loss, the community’s distribution company had been advised to improve the distribution lines in order to stabilise voltage and prevent a recurrence.
