BEDC had instituted a case against the former Coordinator General of EDOCSO, Comrade Omobude Agho, and two other civil society actors for opposing purported poor electricity services and exorbitant billings through a peaceful protest.

The claimant approached the court to seek an injunction restraining the Defendants from further protests that may lead to entering, sealing or taking over the company’s premises.

Following cross examinations of the 2nd Defendant, Comrade Omobude Agho, on Thursday 11th November, 2021, the presiding judge, Justice Victor O. A. Oviawe, consequently, adjourned to February for the third defendant to open his defense.
