An unidentified man, who attempted to steal electrical cable belonging to the Good Shepherd Bible Ministry at Bantama Akyinim in the Komenda Edina Eguafo Abirem municipality of the Central Region, was electrocuted in the act.
Pastor in charge of the church, Adams Essilfie, who confirmed the incident to Adom News said, the deceased tried to steal the cable outside the church building on Friday afternoon when the unfortunate incident happened.
He said church members went for an all night session only to find the man dead with an electrical cable around his neck and hands on Friday.
