Butcher threatens ECG disconnection team

Tema, Jan 30, GNA - A butcher who threatened an Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG) disconnection team has been granted a 20 million-cedi bail by a Tema Circuit Court.

The team went to the shop to disconnect power the butcher had connected illegally but he threatened them with a cutlass. Alfoe Atsu pleaded not guilty and will reappear on March 2. Chief Inspector Mary Assunta told the Court that the ECG team at Sakumono area detected the illegal connection to Atsu's shop and drew his attention to it.


Atsu was given a bill of 1.2 million cedis on October 20, 2003, which he did not honour and on November 11 last year the team went to disconnect him but Atsu pulled a cutlass and threatened them.
