We’ll not hesitate to shoot and kill saboteurs – GRIDCo security


The Ghana Grid Company Limited (GRIDCo) security team will not hesitate to shoot and kill any person or group of persons who attempt to destroy any property belonging to the company.

The warning follows a recent attempt by some unscrupulous persons to burn pipelines in the Tema power enclave and the cutting down of a pylon belonging to GRIDCo within the last two weeks.

Addressing the media as part of a tour of the affected pipelines which belong to a private company, Cirrus Oil Services, the Head of Security GRIDC0, Major Lawrence Appiah (Rtd) Major Appiah Retired said the necessary security is being put in place to deal with any threat that could impact power supply.

“We want to tell those who are doing this because they do not want the good of Ghana to be very careful in what they intend to do. We are ready with the soldiers. We know the rules of engagement but we will not hesitate if the arrest will not work; to shoot to kill because Ghana must succeed.”

“We all know how the government is working hard to improve power for all to enjoy. Unfortunately, some people are not interested and are trying to do things to bring it down. We are not going to sit down and allow it, so we have done all that we need to do. We have soldiers, police, the BNI and National Security assisting us to ensure that we nip it in the bud”, he added.
