Electricity grid collapses in Nigeria

Nigeria’s national electricity grid collapsed on Sunday, the Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) noted in a statement.

The nation’s electricity grid experienced multiple trippings, which led to the collapse of the system. Power has been successfully restored to every part of the country, except Calabar, Ugwuaji, Makurdi, Jos, Gombe, Yola and Maidugiri axes. TCN said it would conduct investigations to establish what caused the multiple trippings as soon as the grid was fully restored.
