Eko Electricity Distribution Plc has been dragged before a Lagos High Court sitting in Ikeja by the Confederation of Iba Communities over “outrageous estimated electricity bills.”
Joined as a co-defendant in the suit is the District Manager, Eko Distribution Plc, Mr. Christopher Olu.
The community was represented by Eric Adetutu, Vincent Bakare, Opeyemi Olalekan and Abiodun Laka.
