The Abuja Electricity Distribution Company (AEDC) has spoken on the reason for the power outage in some parts of Abuja.
The AEDC blamed vandals for the interruption of power supply and power outage in parts of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), Abuja.
The AEDC General Manager, Corporate Communications, Mr. Oyebode Fadipe, speaking on the power outage in Abuja made this known in a statement on Sunday in Abuja.
“Some of the affected areas include Kaura District, Galadimawa, Lokogoma, Suncity, Moccido Housing Estate, Games Village and Eyes Centre Hospital.”
“Others include Kuchingoro, Karamajigi, King Park Estate, Royal Ancor Estate, National Stadium, Feeds Milipat Filling Station, part of Indoor Stadium, DSS Quarters, Wilbahi Estate, Wuye, Utako and environs,” he added.
Fadipe also mentioned that the outage was caused by vandals’ activities on the 330/132-kilo Volt (kV) Gwagwalada/Kukwaba line.
He further said that while the maintenance crew of the Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) was already working on the vandalised section of the 330kV/132kV line, efforts were being made to back feed customers from Apo.
Fadipe, in his statement, also apologised to the customers for the disruption.
He finally assured that the electricity supply would be restored once the fault was resolved.
