In a bid to curb electricity theft across its network, the management of Ikeja Electric Plc on Wednesday, launched a whistle blowing platform to enable customers report illegal and unethical activities in a safe, confidential and secure manner for immediate attention, Vanguard reports.

The platform, which is independently managed by Deloitte, one of Nigeria’s leading professional service firms, allows customers report, anonymously by making use of multiple channels including a toll free hotline, an email platform, a web-based service and a mobile app.

Speaking on the initiative, the company’s Head of Corporate Communications, Felix Ofulue, explained that the new platform is one of the many measures put in place to encourage a culture of transparency and accountability.

With the introduction of the platform, customers can now confidentially report matters bordering on fraud, bribery, extortion, energy theft through illegal connections, vandalism and all actions detrimental to electricity services.
