The Police Command in Enugu on Sunday confirmed the electrocution of a paint factory owner and an electrician in Nsukka.

The command’s Public Relations Officer, Mr Ebere Amaraizu, made the confirmation in a statement he issued in Enugu and made available to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN).

Amaraizu said that the incident occurred on Friday at Uwani-Ugwu-Umuakashi community in Nsukka Local Government Area.

“Uwani-Ugwu-Umuakashi community in Nsukka was thrown into mourning following the recovery of two corpses from a well located inside a paint factory in the community.

“It was identified that one Samuel Ezema now deceased had allegedly invited the co-deceased identified as Emmanuel to effect repairs on his faulty factory water pumping machine located inside a well in the factory.

“And, as he was effecting the repairs on the sumo machine, he got electrocuted alongside the owner of the factory who had gone inside the well to assist him,’’ he said.

He said that the police had begun investigation into the incident, and that the corpses had been deposited at Faith Foundation Hospital Mortuary, Nsukka, for autopsy.
