“Police patrol team attached to Awada Division rushed to the scene and cordoned off the area to prevent hoodlums from taking advantage of the situation to loot.”

“EEDC has been contacted to effect necessary repairs on the affected power line. The case is under investigation to ascertain the circumstances surrounding the incident,” SP Haruna Mohammed stated.
