The Police have secured a court order restraining groups within the Krobo area in the Eastern Region from entering the premises of the Power Distribution Service (PDS) to attack its staff and installations.

This action has been necessitated by the standoff between the company and residents of the area over electricity bills and a supposed indebtedness of the residents to the company which has led to violent clashes.

Meanwhile, the PDS says it will persist with an ongoing revenue mobilisation exercise to retrieve the chunk of the 86 million Cedi debt supposedly owed by the residents between 2014 and April this year.

General Manager of the Tema Region of PDS, Joseph Mensah Forson, told newsmen in Tema that the company has lost some of its key power transformers in the community as a result of vandalism.

He said in the wake of clashes between the police and members of the Manya Kpogunor community in the Lower Manya Krobo Municipality which led to the death of a 14-year-old boy, the area has become a difficult working zone for the company.
