No Electricity To Laaniba, Ajibode, Apete, Others Until…

The management of Ibadan Electricity Distribution Company on Sunday gave conditions some Ibadan communities must meet for electricity to be restored to them.
 Residents of Laaniba, Ajibode, Apete and environs had alleged that the IBEDC disconnected the area from the grid since September 17 after irreconcilable differences with the company officials.
 But the Head, Corporate Communication and branding, Angela Olanrewaju, said the IBEDC conducted an energy audit of Ajibode, Laniba, Apete and environs and discovered a lot of illegally acquired meters.
She said “Meters were not procured through the IBEDC or meters that have become obsolete and phased out by the IBEDC.
 Olanrewaju said, “The customers were not vending or when they did, the money was not going into the IBEDC’s coffers, but to the miscreants that procured the meters for these customers.
 “They were notified on the the need to replace the illegally acquired meters and that they had to pay for the lost revenue.
“The residents of Ajibode reacted by assaulting and beating up the IBEDC staff servicing the area and went ahead to shut down our office.
To restore electricity to the community, she said, “All the illegally-acquired meters would be withdrawn; the affected customers will need to embrace the Meter Asset Provider Scheme, which is the only legal and approved route to get metered and that the safety of our staff must be guaranteed. They would allow us to re-open our office at Ajibode.”
