FG investigates UNILAG case
The Federal Government has sent a team to the University of Lagos to investigate the electrocution of a student, Oluchi Anekwe.
Anekwe was said to have been on her way to her hostel, when a high tension wire snapped and fell on her.
The team is being led by the Managing Director of the Nigeria Electricity Management Services Limited, Engr. Peter Ewesor.
“At the end of the exercise, the team is expected to find out what actually went wrong and which group or individuals are culpable after which appropriate sanction will be forwarded to the regulator, Nigeria Electricity Regulatory Commission,” the Permanent Secretary, Federal Ministry of Power, Dr. Godknows Igali, said in a statement.
The investigation would also provide solutions to prevent future occurrences of this situation.
Igali added that any culprits found responsible for not maintaining the wires would be punished.
