Man bags 2-year jail for tampering with EEDC facility

A 28-year-old man, identified as Christopher Achi, has been sentenced to two years imprisonment by Justice Choebe Ayua at the Federal High Court 1 Abakaliki, Ebonyi State.

He was jailed for tampering and removal of electric cables, property of Enugu Electricity Distribution PLC (EEDC) at Ihenu Uburu Community, an offence punishable under Section 1(10) Miscellaneous Offences Act Cap M17 LFN 2004.

This development was made known to journalists on Sunday by the Head of Communications, EEDC, Mr. Emeka Ezeh.

Ezeh acknowledged that vandalism was a major challenge hampering EEDC’s operations, “as these vandals usually drain transformer oil, remove feeder pillar unit, intermediate or up-riser cables, transformer winding coil or sometimes even remove the whole transformer.”
