Officials of Benin Electricity Distribution Company BEDC and soldiers were allegedly given a chase on Wednesday after they stormed the compound of a member of the Edo Civil Society Organisations, Omobude Agho in Benin city Edo state, to disconnect his light and others over huge unpaid bills.
According to confirmed reports, the area was soon filled up with rampaging youths who resisted the officials, soldiers and also reportedly chased them away. The people also took back the electricity cables that were seized in the first place (as seen in the picture) after which they mobilised themselves and marched to the BEDC outlet in the region for a protest.
