“It will be difficult to imagine the disaster such an incident would cause if the wire fall on the roof of an inhabited building.

“As NEMA moves from reactionary to proactive emergency response, it is pertinent that those already living under Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) electricity power lines or power lines right-of-way should make haste to relocate and leave in a safe place.

“NEMA is also discouraging Nigerians from building under electricity high tension wires or close to it.

“Nigerians must think safety first especially in choosing or finding a place to build or reside with their families.

“Building and estate developers should not build under or very close to these high tension wires; as they risk their lives and that of others that will unsuspecting inhabit such a place,” he said.
