Blackout in Kaduna, Abuja,others as national grid collapses

The national electricity grid collapsed again on Friday evening, making it the third time the grid had collapsed within the space of one month.

Some power distribution companies confirmed the development in separate messages on Friday evening.

Kaduna Electric said the outage is caused by the collapse of the Natidonal grid.

In a post on their official Facebook page the management said:

“The management of the Kaduna electric regrets to inform you that the current outage being experienced in our Franchise is due to a collapse in the national grid.

It added, “the collapse occurred at about 18:29 pm on Friday evening.

“Normal supply shall be restored as soon as the grid is restored, we sincerely apologise for the inconveniences”

Also, The Abuja Electricity Distribution Company stated that the collapse had resulted in power outage in its area of operation, which covered about five states.

In a tweet via its official Twitter handle, the AEDC said, “Please be informed that there has just been a national grid collapse causing an outage in our franchise areas.

“We apologise for the inconvenience caused and appeal that you bear with us while we await restoration from the TCN (Transmission Company of Nigeria). We regret all inconvenience caused.”
