The ECG vehicle was attacked in the protest

An angry resident Philip Tetteh Padi who spoke to StarrFMonline.com said the ECG officials are going around the community disconnecting power to homes without explaining to indigenes the sudden ballooning in their bills.

“I paid GHC100 last month, but this month they brought me a bill of GHC4,500. We cannot pay such huge bills. We have embarked on a peaceful protest to seek answers for the quantum and shocking changes,” he said.
