AEDC gives reason for power outage in Abuja

The Abuja Electricity Distribution Company (AEDC), has blamed vandals for the disruption of power supply in parts of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT)

Mr. Oyebode Fadipe, AEDC General Manager, Corporate Communications made this known in a statement on Sunday in Abuja.

“Some of the affected areas include Kaura District, Galadimawa, Lokogoma, Suncity, Moccido Housing Estate, Games Village and Eyes Centre Hospital.

“Others include Kuchingoro, Karamajigi, King Park Estate, Royal Ancor Estate, National Stadium, Feeds Milipat Filling Station, part of Indoor Stadium, DSS Quarters, Wilbahi Estate, Wuye, Utako and environs,” he added.

He mentioned that the outage was caused by the activities of vandals on the 330/132 kilo Volt (KV) Gwagwalada/Kukwaba line.

He, however, said that while the maintenance crew of the Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) was already working on the vandalised section of the 330kV/132kV line, efforts were being made to backfeed customers from Apo.

Fadipe apologised to the customers for the disruption.
