In the entire Southeast Nigeria, if you have any building under the power lines belonging to Enugu Electricity Distribution Company, EEDC you should be losing sleep by now.

The electricity company has commenced massive disconnection of all properties erected in violation of the power line Right of Way (ROW) in the entire zone.

EEDC’s Head of Communications, Mr Emeka Ezeh, made this known in a statement issued in Enugu on Wednesday.

Power line Right-of-Way or ROW is the mapped-out corridor for distribution and transmission power lines, which is usually meant for electricity high voltage line movement or passage.

It is a precautionary safety measure accompanied by mandatory clearance levels, to be observed and adhered to by members of the public, for the safety of all.

Ezeh said the move followed the directive issued by Nigerian Electricity Management Services Agency, to distribution companies.

He said the agency had instructed DISCOs to disconnect power supply to all structures, buildings and premises that were in violation of the Power-line ROW.

He said that EEDC was in full liaison with relevant government agencies to ensure this directive was carried out effectively.

“We have been disconnecting all property identified within our network to be in violation, and working closely with relevant government agencies, some of these structures have been demolished as well,’’ he said.
