Amid an already bad situation with the scarcity and increase in price of fuel, total blackout looms as the National Grid has reportedly collapsed.
The ugly news was relayed in a short statement made available by the Eko Electricity Distribution Company via its Twitter handle, @EKEDP.
The statement disclosed that the collapsed grid occurred at about 10:40a.m on Monday and followed by outages across its network.
“Dear esteemed customer, we regret to inform you of a total system collapse on the national grid at 10:40 am today, leading to outages across our network.
“We are closely monitoring the situation with our TCN partners to determine the cause and a timeline for resolution,” it stated.
EKEDP, however, “sincerely apologise for the inconvenience as we will keep you updated on the situation.”
