Mr Idemudia noted that the fault had been located and the company’s technical team was already working hard to find a solution to it.

According to Idemudia, the Alagbon transmission injection sub-station was a major source of bulk power supply to the company from the Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN). He said that the fault had put the company’s distribution injection sub-stations in Adetokunbo Ademola Way, Berkeley, Anifowose, Fowler and Idumagbo totally out of circuit.

“EKEDC highly regrets any inconveniences caused by this outage,’’ Idemuda said in the statement.
