Mr. Ademola Faleke, a Pastor and father of Deborah, a 14-year-old girl electrocuted by a fallen high-tension wire at Fagbenro Street, Alakuko, Lagos says her death left him devastated for years.
 
Faleke told the News Agency of Nigeria in Lagos that this was because her electrocuted daughter was the only child living with him.
 
He said that others had gone to their various duty posts.
 
“Initially, I found it a bit difficult to adjust, but now, there is nothing I can do than to accept my fate.

“You know, I believe in God and His word. I know the creator has an interest in her death.

“Otherwise, she wouldn’t have died at that prime age of 14.

“When the result of the West African School Certificate Examination that she wrote was released, she came out in flying colors. She performed excellently well.

“This also left me unsettled, once again, but with God’s grace, I have been able to put everything behind me,’’ he said.
 
Recounting the circumstances of her birth, Faleke said her mother went through a lot of pains before Deborah was born.
 
“ I can not easily forget the trauma that my wife went through during the birth of the late Deborah on Jan. 23, 2002.

“That was barely five days before the 2002 Ikeja Cantonment bomb blasts saga.

“I nearly lost my wife to the cold arms of death because of the hard labour she experienced during the delivery.

“It took the intervention of Almighty God to revive her, because of loss of blood.

“As she was growing, I discovered her to be highly talented; in her early years, her spoken English was quite distinguished, the way and manner she did things also differed from others.

“At the age of nine, she joined the corps of interpreters in the Church and she distinguished herself as an evangelist by leading other youths in evangelism.

“Within 14 years of existence, Deborah had been so useful to God, to the family, to her schools and her peers.

“Although I miss her, I take consolation in the fact that she has gone to eternity, where she is rejoicing in the bosom of God,’’ he said.
 
The pastor confided in NAN that Ikeja Electric had also paid the family some compensation for Deborah’s death, but he refused to disclose the amount.
 
NAN reports that tragedy struck on Fagbenro Street, Alakuko, after a high-tension which belonged to Ikeja Electric fell on Deborah Adebobola, when public electricity supply was restored to the area around 10:00 a.m. on May 2, 2002.
 
The 14-year-old was immediately electrocuted.
 
NAN also reports that Deborah had gone to stay with her cousin, Bukola Ogunbanjo, barely two weeks after she had finished writing her WASCE  when the unfortunate incident happened.
