A robber, who broke into a container shop at Oyarifa near Adenta in the Greater Accra Region at dawn yesterday, met his untimely death as he was electrocuted by some electrical wires at the shop.

People living in the suburb thronged the place when the news about the electrocution went public, forcing the police to quickly come in to fetch the body, which they deposited at the morgue.

The Oyarifa Police is currently investigating the case, but the identity of the deceased was still not known at the time of going to press.

Neighbours around the area known as Container, where the incident happened, revealed that though they were not familiar with the young man, believed to be in his 30s, this was not the first time a robbery incident had occurred in the vicinity.

The head and chest of the alleged robber were found trapped in between the doors of the iron container shop.

The owner of the small blue container shop where provisions are sold, Madam Manubea Opoku, who is assisting the police in their investigations, told the media that at 4:00am on Monday, her husband received a message that her store had been broken into.

Items found on the suspected armed robber included a screwdriver, an iron bar and broken padlocks. Meanwhile, a small bottle of Lucozade energy drink was also found beside him.
