The officials of the Anambra State Physical Planning Board have sealed off block of shops built under high tension cables in Awada, Obosi area of the state.
According to the Physical planning board, the move was necessary as the block of shops which is still under construction are located under the Enugu Electricity Distribution Company power cables, which is running across it.
General Manager of the board, Mr Nwabufo Anene who led the enforcement exercise said that the move became necessary to serve as a warning to traders who are already occupying the shops, unaware of the health implication.
He explained that EEDC had written them on several occasions to warn occupants of the shops to vacate the premises.
Officials of the Board also sealed an ongoing building in Obosi.
The building which has been marked for demolition, sits on access road into three other compounds, against the provisions of the law.
