An Abuja-based media practitioner, Adewole Kehinde, has sued the Abuja Electricity Distribution Company (AEDC) for N100 million damages over illegal disconnection of his electricity. He also petitioned the Nigeria Electricity Regulatory Commission, Consumer Protection Council and the Minister of Power, Works and Housing about the issue.

Mr. Kehinde, Publisher of Swift Reporters online daily, said that AEDC officials came to his house on Friday, May 19, 2017 to cut off the cable over outstanding an outstanding bill.

He said in a statement issued in Abuja: “I went to their office to pay the N10,000 outstanding with N2,000 reconnection fees on Friday, 19th May,  2017. I was told by one of the AEDC Engineer in the office to give them a copy of my payment slip with my phone number so that they will call me to reconnect me back immediately.

“I went back home waiting for them to reconnect but unfortunately, what the office did was what I called 419 by collecting reconnection fees without connecting me back till now.

“I put several calls to the AEDC Customer Care but they became helpless as they couldn’t even get across to the Karu Area Office Manager to prevail on him to reconnect me back.

“It is high time we consumers rise up to the challenge to sue Abuja Electricity Distribution Company for fraud because they obtained money without rendering the services paid for hence my decision to sue them for N100 million damages caused family.

“This will make the Abuja Electricity Distribution Company enlighten their staff that they don’t have any right to cut away customers cable without notifying them in any form of their debt.

“Electricity consumers are the most cheated on the country and I am using my case to put a stop to their fraud once and for all.”
