The Management of Kano Electricity Distribution Company (KEDCO) said it has lost over N260 million to the activities of vandals across Kano, Katsina, and the Jigawa States in three months.
A statement by the spokesman, Ibrahim Sani Shawai of Kano DisCo on Friday, said, there have been rampant cases of the transformer and transformer oil vandalism and theft across its franchise areas.
“We are working tirelessly to secure our network through massive infrastructural investment as well as maintenance, in order to serve our numerous customers better, but vandals are sabotaging these efforts.
“This has been responsible for the recent lack of supply in some locations and we won’t take that anymore. In this regard, we are calling for communal vigilance to help protect KEDCO’s installations against these economic saboteurs,” it said.
