Agboola urged residents to abstain from actions that could lead to economic losses for society at large.

In his statement, Patrick John explained that he resorted to bypassing his meter due to the unavailability of the person responsible for loading it, stating, “Our terminal has spoiled and we have an agent who usually loads our matter directly for us but the person wasn’t available on Friday to load it for us, that was why I decided to bypass it.”
