Engineers from the Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG), have closed down the office of Adehye TV in Kumasi in the Ashanti region.
According to a report by 3news.com, and captured by GHIssues.com, three officials of the TV station have been arrested for illegal electricity connection.
It is reported to have cost ECG about a GHc49,000 loss in revenue.
In addition, the station has been asked to pay the GHc49,000 or risk prosecution in court.
YEN.com.gh understands that in December 2017, officials of ECG discovered a sudden fall in the bills usually paid by Adehye TV, and decided to monitor it.
An ECG taskforce from Nhyiaeso subsequently stormed the premises of the television station on Friday, May 4, 2018, and upon inspection, discovered that electric power was bypassing the meter.
Speaking TV3, the Kumasi West Area Customer Service Manager, Christina Jato-Kaleo, urged the public to provide the company with information on illegal connections in their neighbourhoods, in order to help address revenue losses to ECG.
She explained that ECG incurs losses whenever people engage in illegal connections and unauthorized re-connection of officially disconnected premises.
She added that those caught engaging in illegal network extension to their sites without approval from ECG will be dealt with.
