National Power Grid Collapses Again

The National Power Grid has collapsed again, plunging some parts of the country into darkness.

The collapse of the grid on Sunday morning, was the ninth this year.

The grid, according to Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN), collapsed at 9.10 am on Sunday due to massive voltage.

TCN Spokesperson, Ndidi Mbah in a statement, explains that the high voltage followed the massive drop in electricity taken by the electricity distribution companies from power stations.

She says the massive voltage also caused fire outbreak at the major Sub-Station in Benin City.

Mbah says the bulk supply of electricity had since resumed, following the repair of facilities destroyed at the sub-stations.

Meanwhile, Boko Haram insurgents have attacked a major power installation, throwing Maiduguri into darkness.

The insurgents in the attack destroyed some of the facilities in the 330/132 KV Transmission Station at Molai, near the city.

The sub-station, completed in October last year, was commissioned in February this year.

Spokesperson of Transmission Company of Nigeria, Ndidi Mbah, in a statement said the insurgents destroyed two post isolation porcelain units.

The insurgents, according to her, also destroyed two hilux vans, hijab truck, computer monitor and printer in the control room.
