The nation’s power grid has suffered its first collapse for 2021, plunging parts of the country into a blackout.

Citynews Nigeria gathered that two of the electricity distribution companies in the country, Ikeja Electric Plc, and Eko Electricity Distribution Company Plc, disclosed this in messages to their customers through their Twitter handles on Wednesday.

It said, “This is to inform you that we experienced a system collapse at 13:58hrs today and this affected all customers on the IE network. However, we are pleased to confirm that supply has been restored to Alimosho, Ogba, and Alausa transmission stations at 14:47hrs.

“Please note that gradual restoration to other areas is currently ongoing. Thank you for your understanding.”
