Asaba landlords petition Okowa, DSS as BEDC dares NERC

The lingering crisis between officials of the Benin Electricity Distribution Company, BEDC and electricity consumers of Block VII, Phase V of Asaba Core Area, Delta State, has worsened, as residents of the area may be forced to take laws into their hands if the head of BEDC in the state, Mr. Edgar Ernest, does not stop intimidating residents of the area.

In a petition addressed to the state governor, Dr. Ifeanyi Okowa, for urgent intervention, the consumers under the aegis of Association of Landlords of Block VII, Phase V, Core Area, Asaba, lamented that trouble started when BEDC officials led by Ernest on June 8, 2017 illegally disconnected power supply to the area.

The letter which was also copied to the state Attorney-General & Commissioner for Justice, the state Director, Department of State Services, Asaba, the Commissioner of Police, Delta State Command, the state House of Assembly and others, said that if nothing was done to the constant harassment of residents of the area, they might be forced to resort to self-help.
