Persecondnews learnt that electricity had just been restored in the area and the deceased trying to plug a wire while quaffing his beer, was electrocuted in the process.
Ngozi, 39, said: “He was even the one who covered me with a piece of cloth. As he was inside, he picked a drink from my stock.
“I told him he had taken enough at work and should not drink more beer. He begged me and I slept off.
“Suddenly, I heard a noise which woke me up. It was around 12am and power was just restored.
” I saw him electrocuted while trying to plug a wire. I rushed out and called for help.”
