A Guyana Power and Light employee, Steve Allen, was forced to abort an emergency operation at Reliance because he was attacked by a raging resident on Sunday night. The incident occurred at 21:00hrs. Allen is still shaken and is fearful that a repeat of the incident may occur.
Allen said that the Reliance resident, Sewall Loll a/k “Scott”, forced him down the Utility pole after threatening to ram the pole with a tractor while Allen was still on it.
“I had to race down the pole because the man who was under the influence of alcohol was pursuing me with his tractor.”
Allen said had it not been for the intervention of Lall’s sons, he could have been seriously hurt or even killed.
The young employee, who is attached to the Emergency Unit Crew, said that due to the provocation of the Reliance resident works to restore electricity to residents in that area had to be forcefully aborted.
Allen was at the time attending to a transformer, which is in close proximity to Lall’s home.
Allen explained that during the attack by the resident, he was in the company of two other employees, driver, Ravi, and his Foreman, Moussa Khan. A report was lodged with the police, while another was filtered to the Superintendent of the Emergency Unit.
Was Jagdeo honest when he made those promises?
