Here’s a video of an angry woman trying to prevent PHCN officials from disconnecting her power supply in Ikorodu, it was released on the Facebook page of the Ikeja Electricity PLC shows an angry Yoruba woman attempting to prevent officials of the electricity company from terminating her power supply. Read below how the electricity company captioned the incident
‘In the course of carrying out their lawful duties, our staff are often assaulted by ‘consumers’ who attempt to prevent them from performing their responsibilities. This video is a typical illustration and it captures an irate woman, a resident of Igbogbo in Ikorodu, threatening to harm an IE staff who was in the process of disconnecting her from power supply because she has consistently failed to pay her electricity bill.
In a show of utter recklessness, she threw caution as well as her dignity and wrapper to the wind, to demonstrate her penchant for violence while raining curses on the member of staff who was only doing his job. She was so incensed that she failed to see the risk of electrocution she exposed herself to by touching the ladder without any protective gear on. The situation could also have quickly escalated beyond control if the ladder lost its footing and caused our staff serious bodily harm or worse.
