Electricity supply not for free — BEDC

The Management of the Benin Electricity Distribution Company (BEDC) on Monday said electricity that was being supplied to customers in its franchise areas of Edo, Delta, Ekiti and Ondo was not free.

This is contained in a statement signed by Mr Tayo Adekunle, the Head, Corporate Affairs, BEDC, and made available to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Benin.

The statement is in reaction to news making the round that some customers were engaging the services of electricians to reconnect after being disconnected for non-payment of electricity bills.

“The reconnection is on the excuse that federal government has promised free electricity for two months during the period of the pandemic.

He, therefore, advised customers to manage their energy consumption to avoid accumulating huge bills that may be difficult to pay.

He said that anybody caught in the act of illegal reconnection would be arrested and prosecuted in line with existing electricity regulations.
