“One of our staff, a field technician, suffered a fatal accident while working on an electric pole. He was rushed to a hospital, but unfortunately, he passed on,” Ofulue stated.

“It is a tragic situation and we deeply commiserate with his family and friends. Already, we have commenced an investigation and safety assessment of the situation to determine what went wrong.

“Safety is a critical aspect of the company’s culture and it is paramount that every technician is fully kitted in personal protective equipment whenever they are on the field. The company will spare no cost to ensure that staff members are protected in their line of duty due to the sensitive nature of the task.”
