The Transmission Company of Nigeria disclosed that terrorists have once again disrupted the electricity supply to Maiduguri through vandalisation of key power supply infrastructure, less than a week after it restored power supply to the state capital.
This was disclosed in a statement by TCN’s General Manager, Public Affairs, Mrs Ndidi Mbah, who cited that two towers were attacked early Saturday morning, but the company was doing its best to restore power.
“The incident which occurred at about 5.56 a.m. on March 27 again cut power supply to Maiduguri and its environs. This time, the insurgents chain-bombed two other towers; T152 and T153 on the same line route of the other incident,” she said.
What you should know: The TCN disclosed last week that it restored power to Maiduguri after 2 months outage following the vandalization of three towers in Jakana area of Maiduguri on January 26, 2021 by terrorists.
