Ikeja Electric, the DisCo in charge of distributing electricity in the mainland part of Lagos State, on Friday, April 2, received a deluge of backlash on Twitter after it posted its Good Friday message.

The DisCo at about 12:52 p.m, using its handle @IkejaElectric, tweeted, “Today we remember the greatest sacrifice that proves the greatest love ever! Happy Good Friday #IECares #GoodFriday,” and attached a picture that read, “He gave Himself so that the world may have Light. Today, we remember the greatest sacrifice ever! #GoodFriday.”

But responding, many displeased energy consumers, who claimed the DisCo had treated them cruelly, even as they celebrated the festive period, blasted them with series of tweets.

A Twitter user with the handle @seyebunmi tweeted in response, “Light is defined as life, as seen in John 1:4, “In Him was life; and the life was the light of men”. Those who have faith through Him will have eternal life. This “life” is a gift Jesus brought from God into a dying world. You’re preaching what u don’t practice! To hell with all!”
