Residents cry as  Vandals throw FCT community into darkness

The Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) has disclosed that its Gwagwalada-Kukwaba-Apo 132KV Transmission line 1 has been vandalised.

It was reported that the incident happened  between Towers 23 and Tower 25 of the transmission line.

A statement on Monday,  by the spokesperson for TCN, Ndidi Mbah, said the vadalisation of the line is suspected to have taken place about 1am on Sunday.

Mbah said, “ this took place when bulk power supply on the line was cut off, necessitating an early morning investigation by TCN linesmen”.

“Investigations revealed a vandalised portion on the line route between Tower 23 and Tower 25. The vandals had also carted away conductors, causing power outage at Kukwaba Transmission Substation.”

Mbah said TCN has restored bulk power supply to Kukwaba Substation as temporary solution through Apo Substation, adding that arrangements were ongoing to effect repairs on the affected line.
