Eko Electricity Distribution Company (EKEDC) has warned its customers to desist from engaging in illegal connection to avoid facing the full wrath of the law.

This warning was made by the General Manager, Corporate Communications, EKEDC, Mr Godwin Idemudia, in a statement issued on Friday in Lagos.

Mr Idemudia said the warning followed the recent arraignment of a middle-aged man (names withheld) before a Magistrates’ Court sitting in Ajegunle for allegedly reconnecting power to a church in the area.

He said the court also ordered the immediate arrest and arraignment of the pastor of the said church over the alleged offence.

Mr Idemudia admonished customers to desist from illegal connection and appealed to them to also report any case of extortion or bribery from staff members or third-party agents.

According to him, this can be done via the company’s whistleblower platform [email protected] or any of its social media platforms.

“We plead with our customers to pay their bills on time to avoid the embarrassment of disconnection which may lead to being tempted to engage in illegal connection,” Mr Idemudia said.

Business Post had reported that last year, EKEDC was adjudged the best performing Electricity Distribution Company in Nigeria by the Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission (NERC).
