Residents of Afonta community in Ibadan North West local government have protested perennial power outage.

Radio Nigeria who visited the area observed that the residents were visibly angry at the development.

Reacting, the community leader of Afonta, Mrs Toyin Balogun said despite their contributions to the installation of transformer to the area, Ibadan electricity distribution company, IBEDC left them in total darkness.

A youth leader Mr Akinbode Olayinka who described their situation as pathetic, noted that IBEDC was giving them exorbitant estimated billing without electricity for the past seven months. 

Another resident, Faith Osawe, equally lamented that the police barrack which shared fence with IBEDC office in Dugbe was also without power supply.

All efforts to speak with IBEDC authorities proved abortive as at time of filling this report.
