Such acts are against the progress we are making and we will go the full extent of the law to ensure the perpetrators faced the full wrath of law.
“We appeal to our esteemed customers and the public to join us in this fight and report suspicious activities around our equipment to enable us serve them better. They can report through 08129929016 or via our whistleblowing email; firstname.lastname@example.org
