Photos: Residents of Ikorodu community protest 19 days blackout
Residents of Majidun/Ogonlonto Community area of Ikorodu on Monday morning staged a protest at the Ikeja Electricity Distribution Company Owutu Undertaking office, over blackout.
The protesters said that it has been more than 19 days since the undertaking denied the community power supply causing a total balckout in the community.
"The crisis started when the community petitioned the company complaining about the outrageous bills and recently installed trackers which has greatly reduced power supply. To the utmost dismay of the community, instead of calling for dialogue, the company immediately disconnected the community from power supply. We demand that:
1. Power be restored immediately
2. That the trackers be removed
3. That metres should as a matter of urgency be distributed.
We call on all stakeholder to come to our aid.
