Kano - The Kano Electricity Distribution Company has said that some disengaged staff of defunct Power Holdings Company of Nigeria (PHCN), are using their Identity cards to defraud unsuspecting customers in Kano.
Mukhtar Usman, the company’s spokesman, who gave this indication in a statement, therefore advised residents to be wary of such individuals.
“Some recently disengaged staff of Kano Electricity Distribution Company have been using the PHCN staff Identity cards in their possession, to defraud unsuspecting members of the public within Kano metropolis.
