A statement signed by KEDCO Head of Communications, Ibrahim Shawai, on Monday in Kano, urged communities and individuals to assist in tracking the criminals.

This needs to be stopped.

“Economic sabotage of this act has always affected electricity supply.

“Whenever transformer oil and cables are stolen from any transformer, the act will deny customers of their comfort and right to maximum satisfaction,” Mr Shawai said.
