Staff of the Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG) will be given police escorts to work in the Yilo and Manya Krobo municipalities in the Eastern Region.
This follows the volatile environment due to the continuous agitations by some residents in the area against ECG.
Public Relations Officer of ECG, Tema region, Sekyiwaa Mensah, revealed this on Adom FM’s morning show, Dwaso Nsem Monday.
Over the years, residents of the two municipalities have kicked against what they claim to be huge electricity tariffs, accusing the ECG of deliberately attempting to short-change them.
A group calling itself United Krobo Foundation, which led a demonstration in the area, said they no longer want to be ECG customers.
Due to this threat, ECG shut down its district office at Somanya as part of measures to protect the lives of its staff and property.
