According to PUNCH, the 39-year-old Dibo said she was ill that night and was asleep when she was woken up by Ifeanyi’s scream.
She 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 shouldn’t drink more. 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.”
The single mother of two said she and Ifeanyi got into a relationship about three months ago, adding that the children didn’t live with her.
The Police Public Relations Officer in the state, Abimbola Oyeyemi, who confirmed the incident, said investigations had commenced
Oyeyemi said, “The woman told us that the man was electrocuted but we will carry out investigation to verify her claim.”
