In a video shared by a twitter user, @GbengaGold the man is seen hanging lifeless on the fence.
She tweeted; "This unfortunate fellow got the (last) shock of his life while jumping over the fence to rob a house in Lokoja last night. Can't even laugh".
Another twitter user @felixodunayo said the man got shocked by the electric barbed wire and died as a result.
UPDATE: The young man's body has been brought down, power had to be put off as he got stuck to the fence.
