Policeman Breaks Electricity Worker’s Leg For Disconnecting Ex-IG’s House
A worker with the Eko Electricity Distribution Company, Dele Ogundele had a very, very bad day at work.
His leg was allegedly fractured by a mobile policeman attached to the residence of a former Inspector-General of Police, Mohammed Abubakar.
The mobile policeman, Attah Aninoko, on Thursday was said to have dragged down Ogundele from an electric pole opposite the house and beat him up for disconnecting power to the house of the former IG.
Ogundele’s leg was allegedly broken by the sergeant, who was reported to have boasted that “nothing will happen.”
The matter was said to have been reported to the police at the Ikoyi division and the sergeant was arrested.
The Head of Corporate Communications Department, Eko Electricity Distribution Company (EKEDC), Godwin Idemudia, who confirmed the incident, said the sergeant had been detained.
He explained that the house of the former IG owed a bill of N154,693.85, adding that the name on the bill was one Yusuf.
Idemudia said because the policeman was armed, other officials of the electricity distribution company were helpless and could only watch their colleague being brutalised.
He said policemen from the Ikoyi division were alerted and the cop was arrested. Ogundele was said to have been taken to hospital.
