The Management of Kano Electricity Distribution Company (KEDCO) has again appealed to the public to intensify surveillance in their communities as a measure to tackle the increasing cases of transformer vandalism in their areas.
In a statement signed by the Chief head of Corporate Communications Officer, KEDCO Ibrahim Sani Shawai, said the increase in the menace has caused serious economic losses for KEDCO while hindering efforts at guaranteeing constant and quality supply to customers.
“Those vandalising our equipment are taking advantage of the raining season to sneak into our transformers to vandalise cables, steal oil and other valuables”, said the statement.
“The danger of such acts is exposing the general public and even the perpetrators to disaster” the Management added.
It added that the Management therefore, appealed to the general public to help KEDCO by reporting attempts to vandalise or steal any of KEDCO’s equipment to the nearest KEDCO offices or security outlets.
