The 60-year old man who assaulted this Ikeja Electric staff must have thought he can get away with it just like most people do when they assault ‘NEPA’ staff.
But NO! Unlike NEPA, Ikeja Electric is a private company and they seem to be concerned about their staff unlike most public or Government owned corporations.
Under NEPA, their officials were sometimes beaten and assaulted by angry mobs whenever there is a disagreement or an attempt to disconnect a community’s power line from the source and in most times than none, nothing is done about this.
I believe that this inhumane act will gradually come to an end now that the sentencing of this man to 6 months imprisonment will send a message to others who also engage in this.
What do you think about this?
