The warning was imperative due to the dangers associated with sustained activities underneath cables that might be under stress from strong winds and rains. According to him, cases of fallen poles and cables are rampant during the rainy season and residents need to caution their wards against playing under power lines. “Most of the incidents associated with electrocution occur during the rainy season when high-tension wires usually cut and fall on roads or on top of structures under power lines.

“Despite the fact that residents are aware of the dangers associated with these power lines, they still continue to engage in activities under them. We are using this forum to appeal to our people to stay clear of these structures because of its high risk to the 0ther environment during the rainy season,’’ the management said.
