The father of 14-year-old Deborah Faleke, who was killed by a high-tension wire belonging to Ikeja Electric, said the company only visited them once since the incident occurred on May 21.
Deborah had two distinctions and six credits in the just released West African Senior School Certificate Examination results.
Tragedy struck on Fagbenro Street, after a high-tension which belonged to Ikeja Electric fell on Deborah when electricity supply was restored to the area around 10a.m on May 21. The 14-year-old was immediately electrocuted.
“The management of IE visited my family once, since then my family had not seen or heard anything from IE’s management’’ he said.
He also said that recently the Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission sent its representatives to commiserate with him and his family over the lost.
However, IE’s head of Corporate Communications, Mr Felix Ofulue, said that the matter was being handled by its legal unit.
Pastor Ademola Faleke, the father of the deceased, also said on Tuesday that Deborah performed excellently and her result was one of the best in her school.
He said, “The late Deborah had two distinctions and six credits out of the nine subjects she sat for in the 2016 May/June Examination.
“She had C6 in Economics, B3 in Geography, C5 in Civil Education, and C4 in English Language.
“She also had C4 in Mathematics, B3 in Chemistry, E8 in Biology, C6 in Physics and F9 in Marketing respectively.’’
The pastor, moved to tears while reeling out the result, said that Deborah had desired to study Biochemistry in one of the privately owned universities in Ogun before her untimely death.
He said, “I had promised to finance her education to her desired level then.
“Now that she was no more, the result had become a wasted effort and her hopes of studying the course of her choice dashed.’’
“My daughter was the Senior Girl in her secondary school during her final year.
“She was also the president the school Jet’s Club and the Secretary of its Literary and Debating Society.
“As a father, I had promised her then that I would try within my power to ensure that she achieved her education desire but the will of God must prevail.”
