GPL’s Parika centre robbed by armed bandits

 The Guyana Power and Light (GPL) says that just after midday today, three armed bandits stormed its Parika Customer Service Centre; robbing the location of all revenues received up until that time, holding the  staff and customers at gun point and disarming a security guard of a gun.

The Guyana Police Force has since been informed and investigations are ongoing.

GPL says that today’s robbery coupled with last week’s foiled attempt at the Mon Repos Customer Service Centre is of immense concern to our Company. A robust assessment of security provisions at our locations is underway.
