A girl, Fatimah Yunusa, said to be around 10 years, has been reportedly electrocuted in Oke-Oyi, Ilọrin East LGA of Kwara State.

The incident, City & Crime gathered, occurred weekend when the community was fixing a fallen pole.

According to a witness, “The poll fell after a midnight rain and the community was trying to fix it in the morning. It was during the process that the victim got electrocuted when she mistakenly held one of the wires.”

The spokeswoman of the state police command, Toun Ejire-Adeyemi, confirmed the incident to our correspondent on Wednesday.

According to her, “Yes, it was true but the case was not reported. However, when our men got wind of it, they traced the place. Her name is Fatimah Yunusa and she has since been buried.’’
