“And for B6 Injection Substation, areas affected are: Anthony Enahoro Street, National Assembly Commission, Ministry of Environment Annex, Aneio Hotel, KANEM Suites, Peace Park, Inuwa Wada Close, SO Williams Close, JMG Generators, Customs Quarters, Glory Estate, Dove Estate, Utako Market, IBM Haruna Street, TOS Benson Street, Alibro Plaza, Chisco Transport, and environs” Etim, said.

“Our engineers are currently at both sites working to restore normal supply, estimated to be in a matter of hours.

“We regret any inconveniences and appeal to customers for their understanding,” AEDC said.

Although the reason for the vandalism is not known, it is suspected that the residents vandalised the network out of frustration for a prolonged blackout in AEDC franchise areas.

AEDC had exonerated itself from the nation’s electricity malaise, blaming the generation companies for low power supply to the national grid.

The company regretted the poor power supply to its customers in Kogi State, Niger State, Nasarawa State and Abuja (FCT), adding that even in the whole saga it’s helpless if power is not generated and transported to the national grid.
