Nigerians have been thrown into darkness as the power system supplying energy to some regions collapsed on Sunday.
The Enugu Electricity Distribution Company (EEDC) on Sunday announced the system collapse affecting all South-East states. EEDC said the collapse occurred around 6:49 pm on Sunday.
EEDC stated this in a statement issued by its Head, Corporate Communications, Mr Emeka Ezeh.
He said, “As a result of this development, all our outgoing feeders are out.
“This has affected supply to our customers in Abia, Anambra, Ebonyi, Enugu, and Imo States (entire South-East states).”
“We are on standby, awaiting further information on the restoration of supply from the National Control Centre (NCC),” he added.
Newsbreak.ng recalls that Nigeria’s power grid had collapsed twice in March and twice again in April this year, as the power generation on the system had continued to fluctuate due to various concerns such as gas constraints, water management challenges, gas pipeline vandalism, among others.
