The management of Eko Electricity Distribution Company (EKEDC) on Sunday announced that there would be power outage in Ikoyi, Victoria Island, Lekki and its environs as the company’s injection substations and equipment were submerged in the recent flood, The Nation reports.

Mr Godwin Idemudia, General Manager, Corporate Communications, EKEDC, said that the company was having challenges in almost all its injection substations as a result of the flood from heavy rains on Saturday. According to him, some of EKEDC transformers in the areas have been submerged.

The general manager said that the management of the company had directed that transmission be ‘deloaded’ in the affected areas for safety. Idemudia therefore urged and appealed to the customers of the Disco to show understanding over the inconvenience the outage had caused.
