The Consumer Protection Council (CPC) has slammed N10 million compensation on Abuja Electricity Distribution Company (AEDC) for the alleged  technical lapses and gross negligence to the family of Samuel Ayodele who was electrocuted.

CPC’s Director General, Mrs. Dupe Atoki, said the  order, which the electric  company must comply with within 60 days, would  serve as  deterrent.

She said  the CPC’s position  came on the heels of a complaint from Mr. Tade Ayodele, whose son,  Master Samuel Ayodele, met his untimely death as a result  a live electricity  cable, which fell from a pole at the old Panteker Area of Kabusa, Abuja  on November 9, 2015, causing the electrocution and subsequent death of the boy.
