The youths in the community and other stakeholders amidst tight security went ahead to seal the company on Tuesday.

They alleged that the community had been in total blackout for the past 11 days.

The residents explained further that the sealing of the branch office would remain until further notice.

But, the head media of relations of IBEDC, Busola Tunwase, while speaking with DAILY POST, said the problem has to do with low supply of electricity.

She said that the company had met the residents to appeal to them.

Tunwase, who said, “I am aware. It has to do with supply and it is not an IBEDC fault.

“We just explained to them. We have appealed to them. What we don’t have, we can’t give it. It is not just Okeho. The supply is just poor.
