Enugu street lights: New management team raises alarm over persistent vandalism



The Enugu State Rural Electrification Board, saddled with the responsibility of managing street lights in the state, has raised the alarm over frequent vandalization of its facilities.

In a statement made available to DAILY POST on Saturday by Engr. Simon C. Atigwe, the General Manager, Enugu State Rural Electrification Board, he appealed to members of the public to assist in reporting suspicious movement around the facilities to security agencies.

Atigwe said in the statement that “investigation shows that the malfunctioning of the equipment in some locations in Enugu metropolis and Nsukka is because of persistent vandalism of the facilities by hoodlums.

“Consequently, the board has since swung into action and is currently working round the clock to repair and rectify the anomalies to ensure effective operation of the street lights in a few days time to serve the people better.”

“The board, therefore, appeals to the public to exercise patience and assist the government in protecting these facilities in their various areas by being vigilant and reporting any suspicious movement around the equipment’s vicinity to the security agencies for necessary action”, he said.
