The management of Eko Electricity Distribution Company (EKEDC), announced on Sunday, 9th of July that there would be a massive power outage due to heavy flood in Ikoyi, Victoria Island and its environs. This is due to the fact that some of the company’s injection substations and equipment in these locations have been submerged in the flood.
According to the company’s General Manager, Corporate Communications, EKEDC is currently having challenges in almost all its injection substations as a result of the flood from the heavy downpour on Saturday. He stated that some of EKEDC transformers in the areas have been submerged.
Due to the circumstances, the management of the company has directed that transmission be cut off to the affected in order to avoid any accidents.
The injection substations affected by the flood include Lekki Transmission Station, Agungi, Lekki, Ademola and Anifowoshe.
“Victoria Garden City, Water Front, Maroko and Oniru Injection Stations are completely out.
“We need to look at the extent of the effect of the flood on our equipment.
“However, we are presently working round the clock to restore supply to our esteemed customers,” he said.
Mr Idemudia appealed to the customers to show understanding over the inconvenience the outage had caused.
