DisCo warns workers over extortion

Invest In Mutual Funds Like A Hero

The Ikejs Electric (IE), formerly Ikeja Electricity Distribution Company( IKEDC) has threatened to deal with any worker found extorting money from consumers under the pretext of getting meters.

This is coming on the heels of allegation of extortion by consumers in Iju-Ajuwon, a border community between Lagos and Ogun states. It was alleged that Abule Egba District of the power firm has been fleecing their customers. One of the residents, a landlord within the area, alleged that they were asked to pay N5,000 processing fees into a Zenith Bank account number, 1012998242, ostensibly belonging to the power firm.

But its Head, Communication and Strategy, Pekun Adeyanju, said the company is giving out meters freely, and that it would not take it kindly with any of its workers that collect money from consumers from that purpose.

He said the company has made it clear right from the onset that meters are free and that consumers are not expected to pay for them.

He said: “I’ m surprised that our officials are demanding for money from consumers as regards the issue of meters. It is a development we at (Ikeja Electric) frown at and any worker found wanting in this matter would be appropriately dealt with.”
