Without Power for 4 Months, Residents Of Lagos Stage Protest

Lagos residents protest 4 months power outage

Residents of Ijegun-Imore community in Satellite Town, Lagos State on Monday protested four months of power outage in the area by Eko Electricity Distribution Company (EKEDC).

The placard-bearing protesters numbering over a hundred blocked the major road in the area preventing motorists from passing through to other parts of Lagos.

Osuchukwu Sam-Bell, Chairman, Landlords/Residents Association, said the community had been in darkness since August due to a transformer fault.

“We want our transformer repaired and restored, we need prepaid meters; EKEDC should come and install our new 500kva transformer now,’’ he said.

He appealed to EKEDC to repair the transformer and restore power supply to the community ahead of the Christmas festivities.
