It was a show down day between the residents of Igbo Olomu, Ikorodu, Lagos, South-West, Nigeria and Ikeja Electricity distribution company,as the people of this community hold a protest to the power distribution company office last Tuesday over estimated bill.
The community in multitude numbers stormed the Ikeja office of IEDC with placard and war song. It was a terrible moment for the officials of the power distribution company before they could pacify the aggrieved protesters. It was after about twenty minutes before meeting could hold between the due and meeting lasted more than an hour.
Some of the residents who spoke to us lamented how they paid through their nose before they could enjoying electricity. ‘ We cannot cope with this very highly exorbitant payment again, the money we are paying are very terrible, we pay more than ten thousand every month, some are paying more than that,are we operating factor y. They should give us pre-paid meter, and we cannot afford to pay more than two thousand every month’.
