Tragedy: Police officer electrocuted in Abuja

A Chief Superintendent of Police (CSP) Lasaka Habila has been electrocuted while trimming a tree in Garki area of Abuja.

A cutlass was seen at the scene believed to have been used by the victim to cut down branches.

The officer, who was seen stuck on the tree, was eventually brought down by the Search and Rescue team of the FCT Emergency Management Agency (FEMA).

Reacting to the incident, the Director-General (FEMA) Idriss Abba advised Federal Capital Territory (FCT) residents to always seek approval from the FCT Parks and Recreation Department before cutting down any tree.

The FEMA boss also noted that in the rainy season, most trees would bloom and come in contact with electricity cables which may transmit high currents through the leaves and branches.

The officer’s body was taken to the National Hospital by the FEMA search and rescue team where he was confirmed dead.
