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.
