Ikeja Electric has appealed to customers in Ejigbo, Oke Afa, Ikotun Egbe, Egan, Igando, Arepo, Warewa and Channels Television axis on power outage.
Head, Corporate Communications Officer of the company, Felix Ofulue, said the management regretted the prolonged outage witnessed by its customers in and around the affected areas, adding that the outages were due to a faulty 100 Mega Volt Amp (MVA) transformer at Ejigbo Transmission Station, coupled with other multiple faults along the network of that area.
The Transmission company has commenced repairs on the faulty transformer. However, in the interim, customers will be temporarily back fed through alternative sources to mitigate the current blackout pending the completion of the repair.
In a related development, the recent damage of the 33KV Electric Towers along Abeokuta Expressway, by a truck has resulted in power outage at Millennium Estate, LSDPC Estate Ojokoro, Agbado, Aboru, Jankara and other parts of Abeokuta environs.
Technical teams have started effecting repairs, though restoration of power to affected areas, the company said, may take about a week.
“Ikeja Electric deeply regrets all inconveniences caused our esteemed customers,” Mr Ofulue also added.
