Two (2) persons have been confirmed dead while three others are said to be in critical condition at a health facility in Tamale, the Northern Regional capital after they were electrocuted on Thursday evening.

Details of what led to the electrocution still remain sketchy but sources reveal to this portal that the victims may have been exposed to a naked electricity wire in the heat of the downpour that saw parts of the metropolis flooded.
