A line trip from Egbin Power Station has plunged parts of Lagos into further outages, the Eko Electricity Distribution Company (EKEDC) has declared. The company, which confirmed that the power outage was being experienced in some areas within its operational territory since Sunday, the 13th of March, 2016, maintained that concerted efforts were already being made by generation and transmission technical personnel to clear the fault and restore supply in record time.
A statement by the company’s Head of Corporate Communications, Mr. Godwin Idemudia in Lagos, noted that the line trip had made it impossible for customers being serviced from Ajah, Lekki and Alagbon transmission injection sub-stations to receive power supply.
Areas listed to have been affected by the outage include Lagos Island, Ikoyi, Victoria Island Lekki, Ajah, Ibeju and their environs. The EKEDC’s statement further attributed the outage to a line trip from Egbin Power Station. “Concerted efforts are already being made by generation and transmission technical personnel to clear the fault and restore supply in record time,” Idemudia said.
