In an attempt to protect its numerous customers and ensure safety of lives and properties across its franchise areas, the Kano Electricity Distribution Company (KEDCO) is sensitizing the public on the dangers of illegal connections and power theft.
According to KEDCO, any electricity connection that is done without permission or by the technical team from KEDCO is termed as illegal and doing that poses great risk as it overloads the systems, which often cause power connection to trip or fail. Whenever such occurs it sends everyone in the area in total blackout until such situations are resolved.
The Managing Director/CEO KEDCO, Dr.Jamil Isyaku Gwamna, said there are many dangers involved in illegal connection, including but not limited to electrocution.
