The management of Ibadan Electricity Distribution Company has blamed power outage currently experienced in Osogbo and Ikirun axes of Osun State on the faulty power lines of the Oluode 11KV and Ipetu Ile 11KV feeders.
The company said this in a statement it issued on Wednesday. IBEDC said the power lines had cut and snapped at different points and needed repairs to prevent electrocution of persons. The company said it had explained to residents of affected communities the cause of the outage. It further said the meeting led to the setting up of a four-person committee mandated to work with IBEDC’s technical team. Also, the statement said load-shedding plans were considered as an option against putting the communities in total blackout.
Moreover, the company apologised to its affected customers.
