In a video that is trending online, two ladies were caught on camera attempting to pull a ladder off an electricity DISCO field official, as he tried to go about his legitimate work.
The Head of Media and Publicity/Assistant General Manager of the EKEDC, Sulaiman Aledeh has described the ladies' actions as an 'attempt to kill' as there is no explanation for such barbarism.
In the video, one of the ladies was seen making a video of the incident and saying ''you are going on Twitter'', in what looks like an attempt to victimise the official, as found on the social media nowadays.
Aledeh called on Nigerians to speak against such acts, as many households and big names have been found engaging in energy theft in a nation still trying to develop its power sector to local sustenance and international standards.
He further called on the lady to be prosecuted and punished for her inglorious actions, to serve as a detterent to others of her type.

I have seen colleagues maimed, killed in the discharge of their duties...just recently we lost a fine young man with @channelstelevision ... God bless his soul, amen . Nigerians must know the risks many go through doing their legitimate jobs. When videos aren't there to capture such scenarios we may have Thomases . In the electricity distribution sector, I have also seen colleagues maimed, slashed with knives and some pull guns on these Nigerians . Yes, the sector may have its challenges but it is growing and sure getting better but I must tell you that some of those who steal energy are those you'd least expect and when actions are taken against them they go ballistic . This video is an example of what some Nigerians go through. A safety concern and an attempt if you ask me, to kill! Why try to pull down the ladder and what was her companion trying to achieve by saying "you're going m twitter..." hmmm . Anyway, shame on those who do such. I also think people like her MUST be prosecuted... we can't build a nation of our own when her kind go unpunished . PS, I guess she wanted to trend, tell her I have helped her. If you know her, drop mention her, so she sees herself bouncing on my post. I will share a second video soon of these two and see the extent of what they did on the day
