One of the Rivers State government House vehicle drivers, Ibiba Jack, was early on Saturday electrocuted at his official residence.
The chief press secretary to the governor, Dave Iyofor, confirmed the sad incident saying the governor, Rotimi Amaechi and his wife are deeply saddened by the tragedy.
“Governor Amaechi and his wife, whom Ibiba worked with directly, are indeed deeply shocked and saddened by this unfortunate loss. They sympathize with the bereaved family,” he said.
A source in Government House said that the Jack reportedly died while trying to rescue a man from being electrocuted and in the process, stepped on a naked wire.
