- Lilian Esoro was left in shock after she got served with an outrageous electricity bill
- The Nollywood actress who shared a photo of the bill asked if she was running a factory
- Esoro's bill which included energy, net arrears and VAT summed up to N790,321
Lilian Esoro is no doubt one of the most successful movie stars in the Nigerian film industry but this clearly does not translate to her handing out large amounts of money to foot inexplicable bills.
This probably explains why the Nollywood actress recently took to her Instastory to express shock and confusion over the electricity bill she got served.
In the photo, the actress was billed with over half a million naira - N790,321 to be precise. According to details on the bill, the actress was charged N345,3555 for energy, N419,064 for net arrears and N25,901 for VAT which summed up to the amount given.
Sharing the bill, she captioned:
"I don't understand. Am I running a factory? Or is this for the year? I don't understand. Una dey mad ni. NEPA abi PHCN una dey whine me abi?"
