The Corporate Communication Manager for Eko Electricity Distribution Company (EKEDC) has issued a warning to customers who tamper with pre-paid meters, Spark reports.
In an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria, Mr. Godwin Idemudia said that any act of infraction will be met with a stiff penalty. “Enough is enough; Eko Disco will no longer tolerate this act of illegal tampering of our equipment and electrical installations. Tampering with Eko Disco meters, installations, distribution lines, equipment or assault on any field worker will attract a jail term,” he said.
“The management of EKEDC will no longer handle these actions with kid gloves; this is no empty threat. If you disregard this warning, you do so at your own risk,” he added. Idemudia also decried the increasing number of violent attacks on EKEDC personnel while performing their lawful duties. “Assault on any EKEDC personnel on duty is an act of sabotage and will be strongly resisted,” said Idemudia.
