VIDEO: GRIDCo demolishes illegal structures under high tension lines at Bawaleshie

The Ghana Grid Company (GRIDCo) has led a taskforce to demolish illegal structures sited under some of its high tension lines in the Ayawaso West Wuogon municipality.

The move, according to GRIDCo, forms part of efforts to reduce the growing human activities around its poles.

The power generation company also explained that the site is not suitable for human habitation.

Hundreds of the squatters at Bawaleshie rushed to salvage their belongings before they bulldozed by the team.
