The police in Lagos yesterday arraigned four people in an Ikeja Chief Magistrates’ court for allegedly tampering with Ikeja Electricity Distribution Company (IKEDC) transformer.
The defendants, Hananawa Yusuf, 60; Blessing Edijana, 26; Sarakiya Bamidele, 26; Theokeke Bassey, 30 and Anita Archibon, 40, are facing charges of tampering with private property and breach of peace. They, however, pleaded not guilty to the two-count charge.
The prosecution counsel, Sgt. Kenrich Nomayo, told the court that the defendants committed the offence on September 30 around 2pm at Oluwole Estate, Ikeja.
