There are strong indications that the Bureau of Public Enterprises (BPE), Mr. Henry Ajagbawa and the other directors illegally appointed into the board of directors of Benin Electricity Distribution Company Plc (BEDC) have, out of desperation, perfected devious plans to forcefully and unlawfully invade the premises of the company (BEDC) today September 05, 2022 with the support of some security agencies despite a subsisting court injunction.
It was learnt that Mr. Ajagbawa has fed the security agencies with tissues of lies and malicious allegations against the statutorily recognized and legitimate management of BEDC.
A source that is familiar with the plan said, “We are aware that the said security forces have been deceived to assist Mr. Ajagbawa to unlawfully invade the premises of BEDC despite the pendency of Suit No. FHC/ABJ/CS/1113/2022 between Vigeo Power Limited v. Fidelity Bank Plc & 7 Ors and the orders of interim injunction issued in the said case by the Federal High Court, Abuja against the said Mr. Henry Ajagbawa and his cohorts.
The source added that,”The Court has emphatically restrained Messrs Ajagbawa, K. C. Akuma, Adeola Ijose, Charles Onwera and Yomi Adeyemi from taking over the premises and business of BEDC or parade themselves as directors of the said company.
It was learnt that despite the subsisting court order of the Abuja High Court, Mr. Ajagbawa working in unison with some government agencies like the Bureau of Public Enterprises (BPE), and the other illegal directorsthe have recalcitrantly been shopping for illegal assistance from security agencies to unlawfully take over the management of BEDC, and there are strong indications that they want to invade the premises of BEDC today September 05, 2022.
When the management of BEDC was contacted in the matter, a senior official of the company who craved for anonymity implored all well-meaning Nigerians and the general public to prevail on these desperate individuals to respect the pending proceedings and orders of court.
The official also implored all security forces in Nigeria to reject the illegal machinations of Mr. Ajagbawa and his collaborators and respect pending proceedings of court to avoid breakdown of law and order.
