Omoku, headquarters of Ogba/Egbema/Ndoni local government area
of Rivers State witnessed a black Friday last week following the electrocution of a middle aged man, simply identified as Moses, at about 9.52am.
According to an eye witness account, the victim, a gardener in the service of the Managing Director of one of the top ranking hotels in town, Royal Fortress Hotel, Omoku, met his untimely death when he attempted to pluck an avocado pear with an iron rod.

The source said that the iron rod missed the avocado and connected with the high tension cable near the tree that ended up electrocuting him instantly.
The sad event was said to have happened behind the hotel near a pipeline, and was said to have attracted many sympathisers including motorists and motorcycle riders.
On sighting the hanging body on the tree, the people could not hold back their tears as they wailed and sobbed uncontrollably.

We also gathered that the ugly incident threw residents of  Omoku community into total darkness until 6.54pm when a combined team of policemen and officials of the Power Holding Company came and brought down the electrocuted body.
Meanwhile, the corpse had been deposited in the mortuary awaiting for the owners to claim ownership.
