According to reports, the electricity supply to the venue which also houses the rapper's Club Onyx nightclub was disconnected on Wednesday over power theft.

Operators of the nightlife venue located right behind the police headquarters in Accra were apprehended by the National Taskforce of ECG for bypassing the ECG meter to illegally use electricity.

Citi news reports that the theft is said to have taken place over time. "ECG following the discovery has since served notice on the managers of Oasis Pool and Shisha Lounge to report to its office for further interrogation," Ghanaweb quoted Citi News to have said.

The managers of the facility have been served with a notice to report to their office for further interrogation.

The disconnection comes as part of efforts by the ECG revenue task force to collect debts owed to the company and disconnect supply to defaulting customers including state agencies.

The ECG Taskforce on March 14, 2022, also disconnected the power supply to Terminal 3 and other offices of the Kotoka International Airport over unpaid bills. Sources reported the management of KIA owed ECG close to GHC49 million in unpaid bills.

Other agencies that have suffered power cuts by the task force include the Accra Sports Stadium with the team also storming parliament on Wednesday to cut the power supply to the legislative house over its indebtedness.
