ECG disconnects D-Black’s Night Club for power theft

The Oasis Pool and Shisha Lounge in Accra belonging to Desmond Kwesi Blackmore, popularly known as D-Black, has been cut off from the national grid for allegedly engaging in illegal connection.

The National Taskforce of the Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG) in a routine surveillance exercise on Wednesday, 27 April 2022, discovered the illegal action by the management of the entertainment centre.

The nightclub, located at Cantonments behind the Police Headquarters in Accra, depends heavily on power to sustain its operations with the use of sound systems, refrigerators, and lighting, among other electrical appliances.

The ECG has since served notice to the managers of the facility to report to their office for further interrogation after cutting off the power supply.

A number of public and private institutions have been cut off the grid for similar offences over the past five weeks.

The ECG in the bid to recover its debts declared ‘war’ on debtors earlier this year.

Subsequently, the company sanctioned the arrest of 12 people in Obuasi, Ashanti Region.

Earlier in March, ECG threatened to cut power at the  Finance Ministry and Economic and Organised Crime Office(EOCO) over nonpayment of bills owed to the tune of ¢421,038.02.

It later disconnected the  Ghana Airport Company Limited (GACL) and parts of the Kotoka International Airport (KIA),  for owing over ¢48 million.

However, power was later restored.
