After being electrocuted in the early hours of Thursday, a suspected power cable thief perished.
At around 1:30 a.m., the event occurred in the Nasarawa region of the Potiskum local government area in Yobe State.
Mohammed Isah, also known as Bobby, was discovered dead on top of an electricity pole that provided power to a transformer in the region.
According to reports, late Isah terrorized the neighborhood with damage, burglary, and stealing.
He was claimed to have served a number of prison sentences.
Some residents of the area who do not want their names published said the death of Bobby is a big sigh of relief considering the pain he had inflicted on the community.
They added that the incident should serve as a deterrent to other criminal elements or potential vandals in the town.
Meanwhile, residents have called on authorities to redouble efforts by initiating more programs that would engage the teeming unemployed youths in the area if the menace of insecurity is to be reduced.
