Residents of Abeokuta and other communities of Ogun State have been thrown into darkness following the collapse of three power towers in the state.
The Ibadan Electricity Distribution Company (IBEDC) said three towers on the Papalanto/Ojere 132KV double-circuit lines collapsed, leaving the State capital, and Ayetoro, Imeko, Owode Egba and Mowe without power for days.
In a statement signed by its management on Wednesday, IBEDC said the collapse of the towers adversely affected Abeokuta Transmission Sub-station (T/S), Ojere and New Abeokuta T/S at Kobape.
According to the statement shared on its social media handle, it said all the 33KV feeders from the affected sub-stations would be out until the towers are reconstructed.
While no specific time was given for the reconstruction, residents of Abeokuta metropolis, Ayetoro, Imeko Mowe and Owode Egba will continue to experience power outages, IBEDC said.
The distribution company apologised to its consumers over the inconvenience, assuring them that power would be restored as soon as the towers are fixed.
