Akyem Asene: Thieves damage ECG transformer, steal copper windings


Some unidentified persons have damaged and stolen copper windings from a functioning transformer belonging to the Electricity Company of Ghana Ltd. (ECG) at Me Mp3 Asem, a suburb in Akyem Asene in the Asene Manso Akroso district of the Eastern region.

The residents claim that they noticed the incident and were thinking it was a normal light out. It occurred on Wednesday, February 28, 2024, between 2:00 and 3:00 in the morning.

The rated power on the label denotes that the damaged transformer is a 100 kVA transformer, its total weight is 790kg, and it was manufactured in 2022.

The transformer was serving the residents in Zongo, Islamic, Me Mp3 Asem, Memenda Kokoo, Betom, MTN, etc., all of which are suburbs in Akyem Asene.


Upon arriving at the scene, Freshnewsgh.com found that the criminals had removed it off its pole mount, leaving the entire community in darkness.


One resident said they had called the Akyem Oda district branch of the ECG, and according to them, they had already identified the problem on the computer and promised to fix it.

The affected people, who spoke to Freshnewsgh.com, begged the government and the ECG to act swiftly to replace the damaged transformer with a new one because their rooms are too hot and most stores are closed.
