Residents beat fake BEDC official in Ondo

Gbenga Alejo, a fictitious employee of the Benin Electricity Distribution Company, BEDC, was assaulted and beaten into a coma by inhabitants of Oshinle quarters in Akure, the capital of Ondo State.

Alejo, who claimed to be a BEDC employee, was allegedly attacked by five sons of a previous school principle after he was found posing as a BEDC official.

Before being apprehended, the impostor was alleged to have gone to Akure’s Oshinle area with a buddy to collect bills.

When the suspect came at the retired principal’s house, he allegedly asked the family to provide their power bill, which they rejected.

One of the sons, according to eyewitnesses, grew upset and demanded Alejo’s identity card.

The suspect was alleged to have been offended by their requests and exchanged unpleasant comments with the siblings before ordering his colleague to set a ladder against the pole to disconnect their wires.

The family members were skeptical, according to the source, because they had lately recharged their prepaid meter, which costs N5,000 every month.

Alejo’s companion was said to have admitted to the residents that they had gone to various residences where some individuals handed them money while others showed them their bills.

He claimed, however, that their luck ran out at the principal’s house.

Meanwhile, the fake BEDC employees have been handed over to the police by the residents for further investigation.
