Benin Electricity Distribution Company Plc (BEDC) has decried the rising cases of vandalism across its franchise zone.

In a statement, the Head, Corporate Affairs, BEDC, Mr Adekunle Tayo, appealed to members of the public on the need to be vigilant and security conscious on the activities of some unruly elements in the society whose aim is to make life unbearable for them through their nefarious acts.

The Distribution Company (DisCo) said the power sector has been the most hit in the most devastating manner and the effect of vandalism cannot be overemphasized as residential customers, industries, small and medium scale businesses are being starved of power as a result of the activities of vandals.

‘’The recent surge in cases of vandalism within our franchise area calls for greater attention. More worrisome is the fact that these miscreants are continuously innovating new ideas beyond human comprehension to perpetuate their criminal acts.”

Tayo also noted that the fund meant for network expansion has been channelled towards replacing the vandalised items.

“We are however not relenting in our quest to overcome this societal issue through improved community relations drive of involving all stakeholders at the grassroots aside ensuring that our facilities are well secured in our bid to arrest this ugly trend,” the statement added.
