Reports reaching us says a police Mopol Sergeant Attah Aninoko, attached to the residence of retired Inspector General of police(M.D. Abubakar ) assaulted a member of the Eko Disco disconnection team.
Mr Dele Ogundele the said staff sustained injuries and is currently undergoing treatment. Details of what happened is still unclear. We learned that the mobile policeman, Attah Aninoko, on Thursday dragged down Ogundele from an electric pole opposite the house and beat him up for disconnecting power to the house of the former IG.
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), Mr. Godwin Idemudia, who confirmed the incident, said the sergeant had been detained.
We are currently making efforts to talk to the police officer involved but we have received no response from their end. But this begs the question on how safe is some DisCo staff seeing that this isn’t the first something similar is happening.
