ECG demands accountability from Fantasy Dome management after alleged illegal power connection

The Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG) has accused operators of the now-demolished “Fantasy Dome,” at the Trade Fair site, of illegally tapping electricity through a bypass connection.

According to ECG, it had discovered that the facility had been tapping electricity through an unauthorized link during the recent demolition of the event centre.

It therefore asked Fantasy Entertainment to provide a report to the Revenue Protection National Taskforce at the ECG project office within 48 hours.

A statement from the Revenue Protection Division of the ECG, urged the owners to rectify their power connection status within the stipulated timeframe.

Failure to comply may result in the institution of criminal proceedings, ECG added.

This comes after the Ghana Trade Fair Company Limited demolished the Fantasy Dome on Saturday, 16 March 2024 to facilitate the completion of the ongoing Ghana International Trade Fair Center Development Project.

The CEO of Fantasy Entertainment, Leslie Quaynor, claimed he had earlier served the Trade Fair Company Limited a court order stopping them from demolishing the structure.

However, the Trade Fair CEO vehemently denied the claims of receiving an injuction.
