Witnesses at the scene said the men were electrocuted when an iron ladder touched a high tension wire.

The victims, it was learnt, were peeling off the stickers on the Arco board on the wall of the new bank building when the iron ladder suddenly came in contact with a high tension wire.

“The incident occurred when NESCO (the local power distribution company) turned on power and the victims were suddenly electrocuted. One was taken to the hospital,” the witness said.
