Police Arrest Man For Beating IBEDC Officer In Modakeke

By Sodiq Lawal

A staff of the Ibadan Electricity Distribution Company (IBEDC) Mr Kunle Adenekan is currently recuperating in a private hospital after one Oluseun Daniel descended and beat him to stupor when he distributed electricity bills at Owode  community in Modakeke, State of Osun.

It was gathered that Daniel, a resident of the area, was angry when Adenekan and some other officials of the company went around distributing the bills and threatening to cut supplies to homes if they refused to pay estimated bill.

The residents were said to have questioned the power officials why they still bought the high bills when they had not been enjoying electricity for many months but Adenekan was said to have told them they should not complain as they were not the ones responsible for the power outage.

The statement apparently got Daniel angry and he pounced him to stupor.

The incident triggered the company officials to call attention of the police and arrested Daniel.
