Blackout: Corp§£s are d£composing in army mortuaries — COAS Lagbaja laments

The Chief of Army Staff, Lt General Taoreed Lagbaja, says that corp£§s in mortuaries in some barracks of the Nigerian Army are decomposing over an ongoing power outage.

The Army chief disclosed this when he visited the Minister of Power, Chief Adebayo Adelabu, in Abuja, to seek intervention in its N42 billion debt owed to Abuja Electricity Distribution Company, AEDC.

He appealed for the liquidation of the electricity debt of the Nigerian Army following the disconnection of various Army barracks and cantonments by power distribution companies.

Lagbaja, in a statement issued in Abuja by the media aide to the power minister, Bolaji Tunji, said the main reason for his visit was to discuss the consequences of the power outage in Army formations and the way forward.

“Debt owed is loaded on the meter, so no matter the amount of credit we put, the meters pick it automatically. Corp§£s in the Army mortuaries are decomposing and the owners of the corp§£s are protesting,” he said.

Adding that, “the army couldn’t raise funds to pay the entire debt, as he solicited liquidation as was done in 2005 by the then President.“

  1. why is the Army seeking liquidation of its debt? They get budget allocations yearly for their operations including maintenance of their barracks. Is paying for electricity bills not part of maintenance? Abegi they should go and pay their debt or remain disconnected.

  2. I thought you all were too big to complain. So the thing don de effect everybody. I don’t think I have seen 3hrs light for the past 2months. The issue is becoming worrisome.
