Another Sabotage Attack Hits ECG In The Krobo Area

Residents of Manya and Yilo Krobo were opposing the installation of prepayment meters at the time.


The Public Relations Officer for Tema Regional ECG, Madam Sakyiwa Mensah, pleaded with individuals responsible for these criminal activities to stop, admonishing them that they risk prosecution if they are apprehended, in an interview with energynewsafrica.com.


She continued by saying that such regrettable acts put both themselves and other users of the areas where these acts are committed in danger. They also cause customers' power supplies to be interrupted.

The attack on the power plants owned by the Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG) in the Krobo neighborhood of the Eastern Region doesn't seem to be going anywhere anytime soon.


A high-tension pole was cut intentionally last Friday at Adelakope in the Yilo Krobo Municipality, near to the Asutsuare junction on the Tema—Akosombo highway, according to the power distribution company.


The pole was cut at the base by the attackers with a chainsaw, weakening it.


Fortunately, the pole didn't fall, and on Saturday, November 12, 2022, ECG engineers replaced it.


This is the second time in the same location that some unknown individuals had cut a high-tension pole with a chainsaw.


One of the high-tension poles in the same location was sawed in half in August of this year.

Residents of Manya and Yilo Krobo were opposing the installation of prepayment meters at the time.
