By Ayobami Agboola, Osogbo

The Management of Ibadan Electricity Distribution Company Plc. (IBEDC) has debunked allegation making the round that three members of staff of IBEDC were arraigned before an Osogbo Magistrate Court for allegedly setting Ilesha IBEDC office ablaze.

IBEDC, in a statement issued by the Head, Corporate Communication and Strategy, Mrs Angela Olanrewaju, and made available to CityMirrorNews in Osogbo, on Tuesday, described the information as farce, far from the truth.

Debunking the report, IBEDC noted that the said publication is not the true reflection of what transpired in the Court or what was on the charge sheet.

The arraigned trio, according to the statement, are Bidemi Adebisi (39) a Lottery Agent, Philip Sunday (19) and Adeyemi Sunday (17) spare parts apprentices, they claimed to have been arrested from their shops.

The accused persons were said to have pleaded not guilty to the six-count charge.

They were remanded in Ile-Ife prison due to their inability to meet up with their bail conditions.

IBEDC further clarified that there was no part of the six-count charge linking the arraigned persons to the employment of IBEDC.

“As a matter of policy and fact, IBEDC does not employ or engage underaged persons to work and in this case, two of the arraigned persons were underage.
