Osu Police Barracks disconnected over illegal connection


An Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG) taskforce has disconnected three blocks at the police barracks at Osu in Accra over an illegal connection.

The blocks had connected power directly without a meter and were disconnected by the national revenue mobilization taskforce of the Electricity Company of Ghana.

The illegal connection was discovered by the team on Tuesday, March 28, 2023, as part of its rounds to recover customer monies.


The exercise, which began a week ago and is scheduled to end on April 20, 2023, is part of the ECG’s nationwide revenue mobilisation drive.

Speaking to the media the manager in charge of external communications, Laila Abubakari said “Since it’s an illegal connection, we have the first right to disconnect before we deal with issues.”

“The Ghana police would have to come to ECG where a bill will be generated for them covering a period of 12 months,” she added.

“The administration block also owes, but due to security implications, we’ve spared that facility while we discuss further the amount involved. We consider the police accommodation facilities (blocks) a general facility hence the disconnection”.
