Ikeja Electricity Distribution Company REPLACES VANDALISED EQUIPMENTikj
The Management of Ikeja Electricity Distribution Company has disclosed that its has replaced equipment vandalized in 42 transformer Distribution Sub-stations across its network.
The 42 Transformer Distribution Substations were vandalized at various times in the last six months by unknown vandals thus throwing various communities into darkness.
The replacement of the vandalized substations cost the Company about N11million. This money, the Management said, would have been better utilized in procuring new materials for network expansion.
The Management therefore appeals to the community leaders to assist the company in protecting electrical equipment in their domains. The Socio-Economic effect of vandalism is colossal as it unleashes hardship on people and businesses.
In fact, every citizen in Ikeja Electricity Distribution Company network has a duty to perform towards the safety of electrical equipment because it is extremely difficult to put a guard at every transformer substation. We solicit further the assistance of the Security Agents for the surveillance of Ikeja Electricity Distribution Company equipment for adequate protection against vandalism .
