Two staff of the Porth Harcourt Electricity Distribution Company (PHED) were attacked while trying to disconnect the power lines of defaulters in Rumuewhara, Port Harcourt.
A video shared online shows two PHED officials, one on top of a ladder disconnecting the power lines and another at the foot of the ladder.
Suddenly, locals approached the PHED official at the foot of the ladder and attack him before throwing him to the ground and landing blows on him.
While this is going on, a woman walks up to the ladder and pulls it, causing the PHED official on top of the ladder to fall several feet to the ground.
A video of the attack has gone viral on Twitter.
Long story cut short.
This happened in Rumuewhara Port Harcourt. PHED officials can’t be treated like this.
A judge won’t like to see this regardless. This is wrong on every level so we are putting out there in the news right now.
