EKEDC refutes reports that it handled electricity supply to the Lekki tollgate
The Eko Electricity Distribution Company, EKEDC has refuted reports that it handled electricity supply to the Lekki tollgate.
In a statement on Wednesday EKEDC wrote:
It has come to our attention that there are reports circulating that we handle electricity supply to the Lekki Toll Gate and as such we were seen as culpable for switching off power supply before the gruesome events that took place on the 20th of October, 2020.
We will like to RESPECTFULLY and CATEGORICALLY STATE THAT EKEDC DOES NOT HANDLE POWER SUPPLY TO THE LEKKI TOLL GATE and the Toll Gate independently generates its own power supply through IPPs.
We are extremely saddened by the turn of events yesterday and we stand with all well meaning Nigerians who want a better future for our dear nation.

EKEDC Management vows to continue to provide best possible electricity supply, customer service and fault resolution for as long as it is safe for our staff to leave their homes/families and arrive at their work locations safely.
Thank you all as we trust you will partner with us to ensure supply of electricity is kept intact to protect the valuable lives of Lagosians.
Please stay safe.
