Some unknown persons have stolen a transformer belonging to the Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG) at Bunso in the Fanteakwa South District of the Eastern Region.

The 100kVA transformer valued at around GH¢71,000 was shockingly taken away by the unknown persons last week at the Bunso Police barrier next to the police station.

The transformer stationed on the land of the CSIR- Plant Genetic Resources Research Institute and just a stone throw away from the Bunso Police Station and Fire Service command is suspected to have been stolen while the personnel were on duty.

The unfortunate incident has resulted in power cut to these institutions and households in the enclave for more than a week now.

Citi News sources at the Eastern Regional Office of the power distribution company ECG who are deeply worried about the incessant attacks on their installations are working tirelessly to replace the stolen transformer which will come with an extra 20% cost when being replaced to restore power back to the area.

Management again wants security agencies to be very proactive and vigilant to help clamp down on the criminal elements whose activities have become a threat to stable power supply.
