There was pandemonium at the Ojodu Undertaking office of Ikeja Electricity Distribution Company (IKEDC) when electricity consumers stormed the office over 'crazy bills' being given to them by the company.

 The residents of Ojodu complained over 100 per cent increment in the Bill on a monthly basis without commensurate increase in electricity supply.

It was learnt that following the consistent exorbitant bill served on the residents, leaders of the community decided that no resident would pay the last month's bill unless the discrepancy in the Bill is rectified.

It was therefore decided that residents should return the Bill to the undertaking office on Tuesday.

Our correspondent who visited the undertaking office along Aina Street Ojodu this morning reports that a large number of residents stormed the office amidst tension and anxiety.

Some of the residents, who spoke with our correspondent, said the IKEDC officials have continued to unduly serve them crazy Bills.

"You can imagine from N5000 to 13,000 within a month. This is unacceptable", said a resident.

The complainants are still at the office as of the time of filing this report. (Daily Trust)
