PHCN officials went to a community to disconnect their energy and came close to suffering life-threatening injuries in the process, according to witnesses.
Residents of the surrounding area challenged him as he was in the process of dislodging an overhead cable, despite the fact that he was following instructions.
A video that is making the rounds on the internet shows the moment the PHCN employee had mounted a ladder and was in the process of disconnecting the wire when some young men approached him and expressed their dissatisfaction with the fact that there was no light in the community in the first place.
One of the people shoved the ladder so hard that the official tumbled down on top of a neighboring sewer cover as a man was holding the ladder for the official to conduct his job.
Take a look at the video below:
