In some places the cables touched the gravestones while in others they hung so low that it made it difficult for the public to pay their respects to the dead.
"There is every likelihood that someone may come to harm, including death by electrocution, if they accidentally came in contact with the cables," said a Daily Express reader.
"The fallen lines also make it difficult to clean up around the graves," he said.
He was under the impression that the electricity posts on the cemetery grounds had not been maintained for quite some time as moss had formed around the poles and the base of some of these structures had become rusty.
The reader provided Daily Express the location of the fallen cables.
This information was forwarded to Sabah Electricity Sdn Bhd (SESB).
"We will have to determine if the fallen lines are indeed electricity cables, before proceeding with further action," said a SESB spokesman.
"Should this be the case, our staff will be instructed to check if there is any live current running through the cables.
"They will be asked to deal with it immediately to prevent anyone from coming to harm."
He said the relevant party would be alerted to this matter, if the cables and poles did not belong to the firm.
