THE Management of Kano Electricity Distribution Company (KEDCO) has warned customers against engaging quacks to reconnect their electricity when disconnected by the company’s technical staff.
This is contained in a statement signed by the KEDCOS’s Head, Corporate Communications, Mr Ibrahim Sani-Shawai, made available to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Friday in Kano.
He said that it had become a recurring trend for some customers who default in payment to reconnect electricity illegally when cut off.
The spokesman said the company would no longer tolerate such acts from anyone, and had set up a monitoring team to curb the practice.
“We wish to state that such a criminal offence would, henceforth, be treated in line with the provisions made by law.
“Aside from the economic loss, it also endangers the lives and properties of our customers and staff,” he said.
He appealed to customers to cultivate the habit of paying up their electricity bills as and when due.
According to him, this will enable KEDCO to generate revenue to meet its obligations to staff and ensure quality service delivery.
