The Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) has announced that two towers on the Damaturu – Maidugiri 330kiloVolt (KV)Transmission Line have been vandalized by insurgents, Njenje Media News reports.
Mrs. Ndidi Mbah, the General Manager, TCN Public Affairs, in a statement in Abuja on Saturday, explained that the two towers were bombed early on Saturday .
According to her, the Saturday vandalism took place after TCN had made a concerted effort and restored power to Maiduguri on March 24, two months after the first incident.
In her words:
“The incident which occurred at about 5.56 a.m. on March 27 again cut power supply to Maiduguri and its environs.
” This time, the insurgents’ chain bombed two other towers; T152 and T153 on the same line route of the other incident,” she said.
She, however, said TCN would continue to do all that it could to ensure power supply was restored to the affected areas. (NAN)
