A man, whose identity is yet to be ascertained, has been electrocuted while trying to steal transformer cables in Lambu village, in Tofa Local Government Area of Kano.
Daily Trust gathered that the incident happened around 1am on Wednesday.
A resident of the village, Naziru Lambu, told Daily Trust that the man who was electrocuted had already succeeded in removing some of the cables in the transformer and kept them near the transformer.
He said nearby residents reported that they heard the sound of an electrical spark in the night and also heard the scream of the man before he died.
Lambu also said the suspect was found hanging dead on the transformer alongside his phone and SIM cards.
Officials from the Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corps, police and representatives of the Kano Electricity and Distribution Company (KEDCO) have arrived at Lambu to inspect the incident, he added.
