The management of Kano Electricity Distribution Company (KEDCO) has urged the general public, particularly those vandalising its equipment and installations, to desist from such in view of the danger it poses to their safety.

This warning was made in a statement signed by KEDCO’s Head of Corporate Communications, Mr Ibrahim Sani Shawai, to its franchise states in the country.

The company noted that “the management caution is coming following the incident that happened in one of its installations where a man was electrocuted while trying to vandalize KEDCO cables.

“He was, however, unlucky when power was restored while he was trying to steal the cables and his gang members left the remains of their colleague behind.

“It is in this light that we are calling on the general public to desist from engaging in any forms of vandalism or acts that could put their lives and those of their communities at risk.”

The company used the opportunity to warn members of the public, especially its customers, not to make any attempt to fix any of its installations, advising them to always reach out to the company for repairs.

“Do not even make any attempt to repair or fix anything on our installations. Whenever there is an issue, the community should get across to any of our offices and we will fix the faults, hence no one has the right to touch those installations for the sake of safety.

“Kindly report any attempts at vandalising or any fault on our installation to our offices for prompt repairs,” the statement disclosed.

KEDCO operates in the northwestern geopolitical zone of Nigeria and generates, distributes and markets electricity in three states. The distribution company covers the franchise states of Kano, Katsina and Jigawa.
