Just In: Ikpema Community Youths Shut Down BEDC Office.
The Benin Electricity Distribution Company (BEDC) office, Ikpema unit shut down by community youths ably supported by members of Edo Civil Society Organisations over disconnection of transformer.
Their agitations were borne out of outrageous estimated bills, poor customer service, intimidation by military personnel, non supply of prepaid meters, high handedness of management etc.
You will recall that one Innocent Okpara was also disconnected and beaten by military personnel attached to their white expatriate over a month ago in their Ekae District and have made it a condition for him to withdraw his petitions against them before reconnection.
More communities are preparing to shut down their offices across the state owing to the company’s gross incompetence.
It is the FESTIVAL OF PROTESTS
