0

The Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) has announced the collapse of Nine (9) of its Power Transmission Towers in Ogun State.

TCN General Manager, Public Affairs, Ndidi Mbah announced the development in a statement on Tuesday.

The company states that nine towers, from tower 56 to tower 65 along the Papalanto/Abeokuta 132KV transmission line had collapsed due to the activities of vandals.

The towers located in the Obafemi Owode area of Ogun State were all massively vandalized, leading to their collapse.

According to the General Manager (T) Lagos Region, Engr. Mojeed Akintola, the towers collapse, was discovered yesterday after a tripping was recorded, and a team was dispatched to trace the fault, leading to the discovery of the collapsed towers.

As a result, Abeokuta and environs are presently out of power supply even as efforts are ongoing to supply bulk electricity through an alternate line, to enable Ibadan DisCo distribute electricity to its customers whose supply is affected by the incident.

The GM condemned the activities of vandals, stating that their nefarious acts negatively impacted the gird expansion efforts of the company. Also, resources that would have been used to further improve the grid infrastructure in Ogun State would now be used to replace the vandalized towers.

TCN has again appealed to host communities to work with her to protect the common national assets.
