The defendants pleaded not guilty to the charges and were granted bail in like sum of N50,000, two sureties with tax clearance and verifiable house addresses.

In his reaction, Head Corporate Communications Ikeja Electric, Felix Ofulue said that the company had resolved to confront fraudulent and unethical practices in its network.  He bemoaned the rising cases of vandalism in some communities, cautioning customers against engaging unauthorized technicians who reconnect owing customers, or tamper with IE’s meters and other installations. He pointed out that illegal activities on IE’s network could cause overload on transformers, increasing risk of damage to assets and even customer appliances.

“It is a crime to tamper with electrical assets and it is also a dangerous activity that could lead to loss of life and property when unqualified technicians meddle with the connections just for some paltry financial gain”, Ofulue said.

The Communications Chief called on members of the Community to report any case of vandalism and asset tampering to the nearest IE office or contact IE Customer Care number 01-488390001-7000250, 07000225543. Or send send an email to customercare@ikejaelectric.com
