PHED enlisted armed Policemen, Civil Defense and Soldiers to protect them from unarmed, peaceful, law-abiding protesting customers. PHED’S management refused to listen to/engage with its customers because they decided to express themselves through the means of a peaceful protest.
PHED officials came out, bypassed their protesting costumers, went to a corner and addressed the media that we invited, refused to address the protesters, and went back into their office. This impunity exhibited today by PHED is the reason why there’s even a protest.
The Policemen were professional and did not harass protesters in any way. Mention must go to the DPO of Old GRA Police Station Dr. OK George who took time to listen to and talk to us. Also to the CP Eboka for making sure his men did the right thing.
We are not done. We will return in a few weeks and this time, the numbers will be much more. Electricity consumers must be treated right. am in total support of any legal move that can bring an end to PHED’s wickedness to Nigerian host of Oil & Gas.
