Angry residents of Agomanya in the Eastern region clashed with workers of the Power Distribution Service (PDS).
YEN.com.gh understands that several people sustained varying degrees of injuries, as police officials intervened in the fight between the two parties.
3news.com reports that some PDS officials at the Krobo District office switched off the main transformer because some people had refused to pay their electricity bills.
The residents, who did not take this decision lightly, tried to stop the officials and this resulted in a scuffle.
In an attempt to restore calm, the police fired warning shots to disperse the crowd.
Speaking on the mass disconnection exercise, the Member of Parliament (MP) for Lower Manya Krobo, Ebenezer Okletey Terlabi, said he was disappointed with the decision by the PDS to embark on the mass disconnection exercise.
He revealed he had spoken with management of the Public Utility Regulatory Commission (PURC) to call the PDS to dialogue with the locals on how to settle their debts, and was therefore not expecting them to carry out the exercise.
