The Management and staff of Kaduna Electric once again send its sincere condolences to the families of those who lost loved ones during the sad incident that occurred early yesterday morning. We also extend our commiseration to those who lost property or sustained injuries.
As part of the investigation we pledged to carry out yesterday, we visited the scene of the incident to assess the situation and paid condolence visits to families of those affected.
We deeply mourn the tragic loss of life. Every life matters; every life is important. We cannot imagine the trauma and the deep loss the affected families are going through. We again send our sympathies and pray to Almighty Allah to give them strength in this difficult time. We pray He grants mercy to the departed.
While still trying to come to terms with what has happened, we wish to correct the erroneous reports in the media regarding number of persons that have passed away in the sad event. We leave it to the appropriate authorities to do their duties diligently and reveal to the public the true situation. We wish to caution against bandying numbers that are unverified and are capable of stoking tension.
We ask all stakeholders, especially the media, to authenticate the facts of this regrettable incident before publication.
We have taken immediate steps to halt a reoccurence and will be conducting an internal review of our processes ensure they are up to standard.
