Paschal Emeka, Abuja

The Abuja Electrical Distribution Company (AEDC) has decried the incessant vandalization of its equipment in Abuja.

AEDC also lamented the theft of its underground power cable worth N5 million which resulted in the interruption of its services.

A statement from Donald Etim, the Chief Marketing Officer of AEDC explained that recently, 185 meters of XLPE underground cable were carted away at the Central Business Area, Abuja FCT, valued at over N5 million at just one location out of several others that have been similarly affected across their franchise.

He lamented that the vandalization of its equipment has a multiplier effect that runs into billions of naira.

According to him: “AEDC will not relent on its efforts to ensure it provides adequate, uninterrupted power supply, hence the company’s continued investments in network upgrades, refurbishment of faulty transformers, procurement of new transformers as well as the construction of new feeders and lines to relieve existing ones.”
