Some parts of the country have been thrown into darkness following what was described as total collapse of the national grid.
Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) confirmed this in a statement by its General Manager Public Affairs, Ndidi Mbah, on Wednesday.
The statement said the development was due to voltage collapse at some parts of the grid.
“Engineers from the Commission immediately commenced grid recovery from Shiroro Generating Station to Katampe Transmission Station, Abuja through Shiroro Katampe line at 11.29 am and also through Delta Generating Station to Benin Transmission Substation and has reached Oshogbo and parts of Lagos,” it said.
The statement said the grid has been gradually restored to other parts of the the country, adding that the Commission has launched investigation into the cause of the voltage collapse that precipitated the failure.
