Protest in Edo as JSS3 student is electrocuted
Published 3 months ago

By Cajetan Mmuta and Stanley Ihedigbo
Protests yesterday rocked Muslim community at Eyean in Uhunmwode Local Government Area of Edo State following the electrocution of a Junior Secondary School (JSS3) student.
The protesters, who were mainly students of Eyean Community Secondary School, Eyean, trooped out over the death of the student on the school premises. The victim, identified simply as Benedict, was said to have unknowingly touched a high-tension cable which fell down. He was said to have been burnt beyond recognition. It was learnt that the incident occurred while the students were going home after school.
Witnesses said Benedict was going home when he touched a rod from a broken electric pole when he was electrocuted. Further findings revealed that a vehicle had hit and broken the electricity pole which exposed the rod inside the pole, which had contacted the high-tension cable.
The ugly sight of the dead student had aroused the anger of other students as they blocked the Benin-Auchi highway, thereby causing gridlock which lasted several hours. The aggrieved students accused the management of the Benin Electricity Distribution Company (BEDC) of causing Benedict’s death by not taking steps to fix the broken electric pole.
But when contacted yesterday, the BEDC Public Relations Officer, Mr. Tayo Adekunle, said the company was yet to receive reports about the incident from its field officers. He said: “We will commence investigation and take appropriate action based on the outcome of the investigation. Management will take the necessary action.
It is our people in the field that will give report on what actually transpired.” Commenting on the issue, the Public Relations Officer, Edo Civil Society Organisations, Mr. Leftist Osazee Edigin, said Benedict was electrocuted by naked wires which had fallen for more than 48 hours. He said: “It is very unfortunate that this occurred at a time Edo Civil Society Organisations have been probing the privatisation process and efficiency of the players in the distribution of electricity and the BEDC in particular. “Our Rapid Response Team is already on the ground for on-the-spot-assessment and to ensure that justice is done in this matter.
There is serious commotion in that axis as pupils have gone on the rampage with serious traffic situation. “There is a serious commotion in Aduwawa and Eyaen axis between protesters and police. Information available from our Rapid Response Team has it that the first set of police officers took to their heels having being over-powered by protesters. The Enogie of Eyaen hid the already overwhelmed police officers in his palace until a back-up came to the rescue.”
Fire destroys 200 stores in Benin
Thursday, February 1, 2018 11:19 pm
An early morning fire that engulfed Jos Adun market, popularly known as Kara market, in Benin, Edo State, on Thursday, destroyed goods worth hundreds of millions of naira in about 200 lock-up stores.
It was gathered that the market which is located at Aduwawa, Ipoba-Okha local government of the State, is mostly populated by Hausas who sell clothes, provisions, food stuff, shoes, among others.
It was further gathered that the fire which emanated from an electrical fault in one of the the restaurants at about 9 am, also consumed other restaurants and living rooms.
Scene of the fire incident
One of the lucky traders whose shops were not affected by the fire, Abubakar Abdullahi, confirmed that the fire started at about 9 am from one of the restaurants in the market.
“I was outside when I heard people shouting fire and when I rushed to my shop, the fire has already engulfed most of the shops inside the market. So we started parking out belongings but I thank God that it didn’t reach my shop,” he narrated, adding that about 30 minutes after, fire fighters came to their rescue, but that goods worth millions of naira had been destroyed.
Abubakar said this is the third fire incident in the market since 2016.
Also speaking Muhammed Ali, whose provisions shop was razed down, said he lost goods worth over N1 million to the inferno.
Muhammed who has four children and two wives said he is confused and doesn’t know where to go or start from.
“I have lost everything that I have to the fire. I was not able to save anything, as you can see everything was burnt. I don’t know where to go from here,” he said.
Another victim, Ali Kwara, a meat seller, whose living room was affected, said he lost money and other properties to the fire.
“I don’t have a shop there but a room where I sleep. I was at the market selling meat when they called me that the place was on fire and when I arrived my house, money and properties were gone
“This cloth I am putting on now is all that I have now. We lost over N10 million here. One person lost N700,000 and many other people also lost cash more than that and I am not even talking about the goods,” he said.
Ali Kwara appealed to the government to come to their aid as they have lost everything they have to the fire
