When contacted, the Ibadan Electricity Distribution Company (IBEDC) spokesperson, Kikelomo Owoeye explained that every complaint has its own peculiarities.

She revealed that there was the need to have the records checked in order to ascertain if the problem was a fault or not and if it was a fault, to determine what type of fault.

“All the areas mentioned are not operating under the same feeder. This is why record checking is very essential. It is not something I can comment on just like that.

“I need to be sure of what I am responding to,” she added.
