A video shared by Ikeja Electricity company on Facebook shows a furious Yoruba lady preventing men from the electricity company from cutting out her power supply. They angry woman climbed the ladder with one of the official on it, ordering him to come down
The electricity company wrote:
‘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. It took the intervention of other residents of the community to contain her. Ikeja Electric wishes to remind the general public that we maintain our zero tolerance stance on assault on any member of staff and will not hesitate to seek legal redress against any person who assaults any member of staff. Assault is an offense punishable by Nigerian law and we shall ensure that justice is served on persons found guilty of assaulting our staff. We have put various channels in place to address customer complaints and we are using this medium to advise aggrieved customers to seek redress through the appropriate channels’.

The family member wrote,
“Charles I’m mad at you for what you’ve done and what you put my sister and our family through, we all loved you for who you were to her and to us. This isn’t the first time you’ve tried to kill yourself for a girl you love, but why make rejoice take the blame for your suicide this time around?
“You weren’t faithful to her but you claimed to love her, you confessed to sleeping with her close friend and even other girls, you weren’t faithful but she forgave you, even though she decided not to put up with your unfaithfulness anymore. You made such a rash decision drinking 3 bottles of sniper just because of the text she sent to you, didn’t even wait to talk to her, when you were rushed to the hospital, she had to send 20k to your people for hospital bills, money she doesn’t even have… before you died you told people that she is to be blamed for your death, now on social media people are cussing her out because of you, your family is threatening her, she’s not safe anymore.
charley, you’ve brought her pain, and no one is even giving her a listening ear… you don’t do that to someone you love… I’ve said enough, let me not say anymore.
“Rest In Peace”.
