Some electricity consumers in Adeleye Aparadija Community in Ado-Odo/Ota Local Government Area of Ogun have threatened to stop payment of the monthly electricity charges unless they were given bills.
They told the News Agency of Nigeria in Lagos that about 96 houses in the community were paying monthly charges into an account created by Ibadan Electricity Distribution Company, IBEDC.
A landlord at Ola-Oluwa Street, Shehu Tijani, said that few consumers in the community were receiving monthly bills, while many others were paying directly into this account without bills.
Mr. Tijani said that all efforts made by the Community Development Association to ensure that all houses were given bills by IBEDC proved abortive.
He said consumers had resolved that they would no longer pay charges unless they receive their monthly electricity bills like others.
“Enough is enough; we cannot continue to pay our money into any account any longer.
“IBEDC should treat us like other consumers; we want our data to appear in the system like others.
“How do we know whether the money we pay enter genuine account or not.
