A middle-aged man whose name has not been revealed has been electrocuted while destroying a campaign billboard of Adebayo Adelabu, a former Deputy Governor of the Central Bank of Nigeria (CBN).
Adelabu is the governorship candidate of the Accord Party in Oyo State.
It was gathered that the victim, identified as a member of the Park Management System (PMS), had climbed a pole at the Challenge area in Ibadan on Friday without knowing that the billboard was connected to a live wire close to it.
While the victim was fighting for his life, his colleagues fled the scene of the incident before the arrival of police officers.
A video of the incident which has gone viral, showed the victim lying on the ground while passersby watched his lifeless body.
