The Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) says the current power outage in some North East states was due to a tripping, caused by a fault on the Jos-Gombe 330kv transmission line.
TCN General Manager, Public Affairs, Mrs Ndidi Mbah stated this in a statement on Monday in Abuja, adding that the problem occurred shortly after the annual scheduled maintenance on the transmission line.
According to her, the line tripping occurred at about 19:09, on Sept. 22, shortly after it was re-energised. She said efforts were being made by TCN line engineering crew to resolve the problem and restore the transmission line accordingly. States affected by the outage include Bauchi, Gombe, Adamawa, Borno, Yobe and Taraba.
