States in the southeast are experiencing a blackout as power distribution to the region has been halted following the industrial action by the National Union of Electricity Employees (NUEE) at the Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) power stations.

AllNews Nigeria previously reported that electricity workers disclosed that they were embarking on an indefinite strike over pending issues with the Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN).

As of Wednesday afternoon, the development has thrown the five states in the southeast region into a total blackout, as reported by Daily Post.

Confirming the blackout, the Head of Corporate Communications, EEDC, Emeka Ezeh, said that operations across the franchise area of the Enugu Electricity Distribution Company PLC (EEDC) have been disrupted.

"As a result of this development all our feeders are out of supply and this has affected supply to our esteemed customers in Abia, Anambra, Ebonyi, Enugu and Imo States.

“Consultations are ongoing among critical stakeholders in the power sector to address this issue and possibly restore supply.

“The Management of EEDC hereby encourage customers and neighbourhood associations to be vigilant and protect the electrical installations within their environment against elements who might take advantage of this outage to vandalise these installations.

“We, therefore, appeal for continued patience and understanding while this is resolved", he stated.
