The Kano Electricity Distribution Company (KEDCO) has called on the general public to ensure the protection of power structures in their area.
The request was made because of persistent electrical equipment theft, according to a statement released on Thursday in Kano by Ibrahim Sani-Shawa, the company’s chief corporate communications officer.
He claimed that the threat had resulted in significant financial losses and inadequate electricity supply for customers.
“Those who break into our transformers to steal cables, oil, and other items are vandalizing our equipment.
He declared that such an act puts both the public and the culprits in danger.
The public is urged by Sani-Shawa to report or catch such a vandal and turn him over to the local security organization that is the closest.
