A customer of Ikeja Electricity Distribution Company Limited, Mr. Stephen Alao, has for the umpteenth time protested against the outrageous bills being charged him monthly.
This is the second time Mr. Alao would be protesting against the ‘crazy’ bills through this medium. He had earlier in October this year complained of the anomaly, but his protest fell on deaf ears.
In a letter addressed to the Managing Director of the company, a copy of which was made available to EDO VOICE, the aggrieved customer said he maintains a two-bedroom flat with energy-saving bulbs, no air conditioner, no washing machine, no deep freezer, no pressure cooker, not an office, not on commercial or industrial line but single face and hardly stay at home, yet he was billed between N19, 803.83 and N38, 935. 89 for the period between January and October, 2018.
He expressed dismay that despite his several protest letters, the company had not deemed it fit to rectify the anomaly.
The letter, which was also copied the National Electricity Regulation Commission (NERC), is reproduced below.
