The Minister of Power, Works and Housing, Mr Babatunde Fashola
on Friday said that the Federal Government would begin the prosecution of Energy Thieves
soon, The Guardian reports.
He said that this would begin when the ministry concluded its ongoing audit to tackle issue of metering. Fashola made this known at an Interactive Session with members of 21 Civil Society Organisations and the media on Friday in Lagos.
He said that some influential people in the country were not paying for power, adding that plans were on to prosecute them and drag them into the Energy
payment net. Fashola, however, said that government would fix the problems facing the power sector before applying sanction on energy thieves.
