Two gentlemen went to an establishment yesterday and issued a notice that the company owes ECG, and they had come to collect an amount of GH¢11,000. So, there was a tip-off from the customer that these gentlemen on their premises were shady. We have been able to make the arrest, and they have gone through the process to confirm that they are indeed not staff.”

The two are currently in the grips of the police and will be facing prosecution in the coming days according to the power distribution company.

“They are now in the custody of the police and will be taken through the process of verification”, she added.
