Customers of the Port Harcourt Electricity Distribution Company (PHED) in some parts of the city are currently experiencing power outage as a result of massive load shedding.
The distribution company in a statement apologising for the power outage revealed that the intermittent power interruptions are as a result of a technical fault on the 33/11kv power transformer at Rumuola Injection Substation.
