The government of Enugu raises the alarm for the illegal interception of the power lines of the factories
The Enugu state government has sounded the alarm over a series of illegal connections of the Enugu Electricity Distribution Company (EEDC) lines feeding government factories to private offices and homes by unscrupulous individuals.
A statement by the governor’s special adviser for information, Steve Oruruo, revealed that such wrongdoing includes “diversion of electrical load, voltage bypass (415), wiretapping and all kinds of illegal connections”.
Oruruo pointed out that the criminal acts were carried out in secret by the perpetrators to defraud the state government.
The special adviser said the state government ordered “all non-compliant people to immediately disconnect from such illegal connections or face the full wrath of the law.”
He added that the government has ordered the public to report all cases of illegal and fraudulent connections to the relevant authorities.
The state of Enugu is in the hands of God
