However, all the other distribution companies did not indicate if they have the same problem, or whether it’s a problem localised to Lagos.

Ikeje Electric that serves the other half of Lagos metropolis was also silent on whether its supply has been affected by the outage.

There was no word from the Transmission Company of Nigeria or the National Control Centre.
