The national grid, on Monday, experienced another system collapse, throwing the country into darkness.

The grid collapsed at about 1 pm, according to Ndidi Mbah, general manager, public affairs at Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN), who said the grid has been fixed.

“The collapse happened by 13.49 this afternoon. It is now fully restored by 18.51,” Mbah said.

This is the third time in recent months that the national grid has collapsed.


Efforts to confirm from TCN proved abortive.

In September 2023, the national grid system collapsed twice.

The grid had collapsed on September 14, 2023, and September 19, 2023, respectively,  but were restored in due time.


Meanwhile, earlier today, Mbah said the company’s Gwagwalada-Kukwaba-Apo 132 kilovolts (KV) transmission line 1 was vandalised.

Mbah said the line between “towers 23 and tower 25” was vandalised.

She added that the act was suspected to have taken place at about 1 am on December 10, 2023.

Mbah said the company is making arrangements to effect repairs on the affected line.
