Eko Disco Explains Cause of Power Outage in Ikoyi, VI & Environs.
Eko Electricity Distribution Company has given the reason behind the current power outage being experienced in some parts of Lagos Island.
A Press statement by the company said the outage was due to the breakdown of some facilities at the Alagbon Transmission injection sub-station which is a major source of bulk power supply to the company from the Transmission Company of Nigeria.
The statement, signed by the company’s General Manager, Corporate Communications, Mr. Godwin Idemuida, said the fault at Alagbon Transmission station has put the company’s distribution injection sub-stations in Adetokunbo Ademola way, Berkeley, Anifowose, Fowler and Idumagbo totally out of circuit.
According to the statement, areas being affected by the outage include Lagos Island, Ikoyi, Victoria Island, Park view estate, Obalende, Idumagbo and other adjoining areas.
