The Federal Competition and Consumer Protection Commission (FCCPC) has filed a lawsuit against Mikano International Limited, a generator company, at the Federal High Court in Abuja, alleging that the company obstructed an ongoing investigation. 

In a statement released on Wednesday, Adamu Abdullahi, the Acting Executive Vice Chairman/Chief Executive Officer, made this revelation. 

The Commission reported that the criminal charge was lodged on Friday, March 8, 2024. 

On December 16, 2022, the Federal High Court in Abuja authorized the Commission with an order and search warrant to perform searches among numerous generator companies. 

The Commission Initiated the investigation due to the high importance placed on the electricity power industry, including both primary/substantive production and alternative power sources. 

“The charges concern the target’s actions during the execution of the search warrant and thereafter the Commission considers obstruction of justice and a lawful investigation and failure to comply with lawful requests to frustrate the investigation. 

The drop in power supply from Nigeria’s national grid has heightened consumer interest in obtaining generators and other alternative sources of power
