Emmanuel Ugwumbor, a 32-year-old Disc Jockey, was on Sunday night at Jesse town of Ethiope West Local Goverment area of Delta State, electrocuted to death, after he tried to repair a faulty electrical line without using protective hand gloves.
Ugwumbor, popularly called DJ Bullet in Delta State, was said to be at his home on Sunday night when the Benin Electricity Distribution Company (BEDC) restored light. He was said to have noticed there was no electricity in his apartments while others had, curious about the development, he was said to have gone out to rectify the fault.
According to a neighbour who craved anonymity, ”DJ Bullet was billed to attend a birthday party the next day and as usual he was curious to test his musical equipment, so when there was no light he went out to locate the fault and see if he could effect repairs, the next thing we heard was someone screaming that he, Emmanuel (DJ Bullet) had been electrocuted. We took him to hospital but he died before doctors could attend to him” the neighbour said in tears.
Popular for his Mix Tape called Bullet One last year, the Disc Jockey was said to have released the second part of the Mix Tape this February, a collection of songs by Nigerian musicians.
