VIDEO: Finally, IKEDC returns to disconnect house after facing violent resistance

Days after occupants of an apartment in Lagos prevented the technical staff of power distribution company, Ikeja Electric, from disconnecting their power and assaulted them, the officials have finally disconnected the building.

The disconnection was done in a collaborative effort of security operatives who stormed the building alongside the technical team of Ikeja Electric.

Recall that the earlier attempt to disconnect the storey building was futile as the occupants assaulted the men of the IKEDC.

At the time, a woman was seen ferociously attacking one of the staff members of the DISCO, trying to smash his head with a weapon in a video circulated on social media. In the same video, the other occupants were visibly encouraging the attack.

Meanwhile, the reason for disconnecting the apartment was not known but sources say it is connected to lack of payment for power supplied.

The recent incident has since drawn a potpourri of reactions online with many people condemning the occupants of the building and further calling for the arrest of the woman who engaged the Disco staff in a fight.
