It was a tragic day for the family of Mrs. Happiness Sunday Okon and the students and staffs of Government Secondary School Atekong as an adjoining electric pole electrocuted one of the student, Isaac Sunday Okon to death Friday afternoon in Calabar.
CrossRiverWatch gathered that Isaac Sunday Okon is the only son and a brother to three sisters and was in the Junior Secondary School of the Government Secondary School, Atekong Drive.
Information gathered was that the tragic incident occurred at about 2pm as students were asked to come out and pick up the litters around the school compound unknowing to the boy that there was a high tension wire resting on a rod until he mistakenly stepped on it and was burnt to death.
Mrs. Happiness Sunday Okon a petty trader while wailing said the boy is the only son of the family as their father died since 2011.
The remains of Isaac Okon has been deposited in the Teaching Hospital Morgue Calabar.
