Ozoigbo Ikenna, 40, who allegedly assaulted a staff of Ikeja Electricity Distribution Company was on Wednesday arraigned at an Ikeja Magistrates’ Court.

Ikenna, a resident of Williams Eliot St. New Oko-Oba area of Lagos, pleaded not guilty to a two-count of assault and breach of peace levelled against him.

The prosecutor, Cpl. Ishola Samuel, told the court that the accused beat up Ms Enyi Eunice while on lawful duty January 20, at the accused residence.

Samuel said that the complainant was performing her official duties by sharing electricity bills, when she was assaulted by the accused in his compound.

He said, “The accused, locked the entrance gate, deprived her of going outside and beat up the complainant for bringing an electricity bill without a constant light.”

He said that Ikenna confronted Eunice about the bill, and she got a beating from the accused and was left with a black eye.

According to him, the case was reported to the police and Ikenna was subsequently arrested.

He said that the offences contravened Sections 171 and 166 of the Criminal Law of Lagos State, 2011.

Section 171 prescribes a three-year jail term for assault and harm.

Following the plea of the accused, the Magistrate, Mr A.R. Onilogbo, granted him bail in the sum of N10,000, with two sureties in like sum.

Onilogbo said that the sureties must be gainfully employed and must show evidence of two years’ tax payment to the Lagos State Government.

The magistrate adjourned the case till Feb. 22, 2017 for mention.

And what is the penalty for PHCN? Distributing bills without bringing power? Sometimes, I ask myself what kind of country we live in.

I'm not saying beating up the PHCN official is right, but them distributing bills and not even giving power is senseless. If you sue them, the judge will dismiss the case.

I believe by the time more PHCN staff get assaulted, they'd know not to distribute bills when they didn't give power supply.

In 2017, so many basic things are still wrong with nigeria. It will be wrong to say i support the physical abuse of the official , but the truth is, the system is mentally abusing us. Y do we have to pay for something we do not use .
And sometimes dis officials instead of understanding the situation will be forming oga as if we are not in d struggle together .
A country after 56 years is lacking water and light !! Chisos!!

It's a sin to be poor. I pity the poor marketer that was beaten up while the real THIEVES are sitting in air-conditioned offices or flying first class round the globe, immune from assault.

I will never in any way support beating of PHCN staffs but the fact remain that, PHCN should just make prepaid meter available so that if there is electricity they will know they are gaining and when not, no one will yell them that they are losing as well. But it just that Nigerians has embrace corruption to the maximum level.

I believe by the time more PHCN staff get assaulted, they'd know not to distribute bills when they didn't give power supply.

Sadly, PHCN also needs the money from the bills to make improvements so that you can have light 24/7.

Indeed one big reason why the DISCOS, GENCOS and TCN cannot guarantee light is because most Nigerians do not pay their light bills at all.

Even the prepaid meter that was supposed to end pay dodgers....people bypass them so that they can get free light.

And as a result...there is no money to buy new equipment, no money to upgrade existing equipment, and no money to even expand the power supply.

Thanks to privatisation, which most Nigerians did not oppose...the onus is even more on us to pay for our light. We cannot refuse to pay for light because they have not given us light at all. That means that there would be no money not only for power infrastructure improvement...but also no money for staff salaries too. And DISCO/GENCO workers are Nigerians like you...who also have bills to pay, and lives to maintain.

We may look at this man who beat up DISCO staff as a hero. We may even encourage more people to go ahead and commit acts of violence against DISCO staff....but remember....the reason why we do not have power is because we refuse to pay our bills.

Am sure the man who beat up the staff would complain if his working place did not give him his salary. He would complain that it prevents him from being an effective worker.Why then do we insist on making power supply inefficient for all....by refusing to pay our bills.

Sorry.....but Ozoigbo Ikenna and people like him ARE the reason why you Nigerian people do not have light.

Please...pay your bills. OK?
