Factory Worker

The electrocution of a casual worker at a factory in the Isolo area of Lagos state, has been confirmed by the Lagos State Police Command.

The command’s spokesperson, SP Benjamin Hundeyin, confirmed this on Wednesday.

Hundeyin said the incident was reported at the Aswani Police Division on Tuesday at about 5:06 pm by the manager of the company.

He said the manager told the police that one of their casual workers was electrocuted while refilling an industrial chiller with water.

The police spokesperson said the victim was immediately rushed to a private hospital at Isolo, where he was later referred to Isolo General Hospital.

Hundeyin said the victim, however, was confirmed dead on arrival at the hospital by the doctor on duty.

“No physical injury was observed on the corpse. The body has been removed and deposited at the morgue for autopsy. Meanwhile, investigation into the case is in progress,” he said.
