A man has been electrocuted after he climbed a high-tension pylon in Kasoa in the Central Region.

According to eyewitnesses, Kofi Kakra, a bus conductor aka driver’s mate, complained about general economic difficulties and life’s struggles.

The 24-year-old then proceeded to climb the pylon.

Eyewitnesses said they tried to talk him out of his decision and urged him to come down but he ignored them and continued climbing.

The Police were, therefore, called to the scene.

However, he still refused to descend.

The young man stayed on the high-tension pole for a few hours while the Police and residents looked on, taken aback by his behaviour.

At around 5 pm, the man was seen swinging from one of the poles and a few minutes later got electrocuted.
