Daily Courier – The management of the Abuja Electricity Distribution Company (AEDC) and the Economics and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) Wednesday resolved their differences.
The company has therefore foreclosed any possibility of legal redress as earlier threatened.
This was contained in a statement issued by the company and made available to this medium.
The crux of the matter it was learnt bordered on what the company described as unwarranted invasion of it’s premises and harrasment of it’s officials by the operatives few days ago.
While relating the turn of event in a statement, the AEDC said’
“The recent friction between our great company, Abuja Electricity Distribution Plc and the EFCC, has been resolved.
“This was the outcome of a meeting between senior officials of both organisations where it came to the fore that the recent incident at our corporate headquarters involving some of our staff and officials of the EFCC on 6 June 2022, was as a result of misinformation and misunderstanding.
“Following this high-level engagement, both sides resolved to settle all the issues amicably and forge ahead in the interest of peace and mutual cooperation.
“In the light of this development our company AEDC shall not be seeking legal redress.
“We wish to also make clear that as a responsible corporate citizen AEDC will continue to collaborate and cooperate with the EFCC and other law enforcement agencies, in their activities and operations when required to do so.”
