A technical malfunction plunged 14 Ogun communities into a power outage, according to IBEDC


Currently, 14 communities in Ogun State are facing power outages, attributed by the Ibadan Electricity Distribution Company (IBEDC) to technical faults in power installations.

IBEDC’s spokesperson, Busolami Tunwase, confirmed this during a phone conversation with The PUNCH on Wednesday.

The disruption, caused by a faulty breaker on the Ijoko 33kV feeder, has left areas in Ado-Odo/Ota Local Government, including Sango, Gasline, Oyero, Onipetesi, Agoro, Olowoagolo, Okunola estate, Lagos/Abeokuta road, Elerinko, Shoprite, Abule-Iroko, and others without power.

IBEDC is collaborating with the Transmission Company of Nigeria to resolve the issue.


Additionally, a technical fault in Kwara State has been fixed, affecting areas like Apalara, Oke-Fomoh, Madi, Ogundale, Owode Kekere, Oloje Husing Estate, Gbaako, Oko Olowo, Sobi Barracks, Alagbado, Gambari, Okelele, Sefura, Dada, and surroundings.

The persistent low power supply nationwide, attributed to gas shortages, remains unresolved.

The Eko Electricity Distribution Company and Port Harcourt Electricity Distribution Company have also cited gas shortages affecting their services.

Since January, Nigerians have complained about blackouts, with the Minister of Power, Adebayo Adelabu, pledging to address the gas constraints issue.
