DANGER: Pole with high tension cable falls in Ikeja – Photos

As people across the world celebrate the occasion of Valentines Day, residents of Ajao road, Ikeja Lagos Mainland were faced with a dangerous situation that could have resulted into a major disaster in the community earlier today, Wednesday, February 14, 2018.

It was gathered that an articulated truck with registration number XP903LSD knocked off the high tension pole and cables belonging to Ikeja Electricity Distribution Company in the area.

As a result of the accident, the entire community was thrown into darkness following the power outage caused by the fallen cable. The situation also led to traffic gridlock in the axis with motorists trapped in the area.

The situation was however salvaged by the swift intervention of CDA executives in the area who assisted the Ikeja Distribution Company to remove the fallen cables and pole have restored normalcy on the Ajao road traffic.

Meanwhile, the CDA chairman, Mr. Yemi Adebowale handed over the vehicle key to the security operatives attached to the Man Center Police Division for their prompt action.
