Kano Electricity Distribution Company has appealed to all communities in Kano state to as a matter of urgency, intensify surveillance on KEDCO equipments in all the communities to check on theft and vandalism.

KEDCO in a statement signed by its Head of Corporate Communication, Ibrahim Sani Shawai and made available to our correspodent reports on Thursday 14-07-2022, said the measure will guarantee constant and quality supply of electricity to customers.

KEDCO has therefore appealed to the public to intensify surveillance in their communities as a measure to tackle theft and the increasing cases of transformer vandalism in their areas.

Newsmen report that the distribution Company has over time been complaining of theft and vandalism, which amount to the loss of millions of Naira.

The danger of such acts is exposing the general public and even the perpetrators to disaster,” reads part of the statement.

The company however appealed to the general public to help by reporting attempts to vandalise or steal any of its equipment to its nearest offices or security outlets.

Recall that in 2020 alone, KEDCO alleged to have lost over N260m in three months to the activities of vandals in its franchise states of Kano, Katsina and Jigawa.

This has affected the company in various ways thereby costing them alot of millions of Naira to re-install.

The company has also alleged that hose vandalising their equipments are taking advantage of the raining season to sneak into their transformers to vandalise cables, steal oil and other valuables.

This is a wake up call on Community vigilante groups, rural dwellers and leaders to help out.
