Reps seek ban of structures under high tension electricity cables

The House of Representatives wants a law to ban the erection of buildings under high-tension electrical wires.

A motion seeking a law for the ban was sponsored by Rep Kolawole Taiwo Musibau on Wednesday.

The motion noted “the indiscriminate and unlawful erection of buildings under high tension electric cables all over the country as well as commercial activities taking place on the right of way of the high tension electric cables, as it raised awareness that “there are existing laws that forbid the erection of buildings under electric high tension wires which specify a 50 meters’ distance between power lines and buildings”.
