The country witnessed nationwide blackout as the power grid was allegedly said to have collapsed on Saturday morning even as engineers battled round the clock to restore power transmission.
The system collapse led to the shutdown of all the nation’s power plants.
A top executive of one of the nation’s electricity distribution companies disclosed that the national grid first collapsed on Friday.
When contacted to find out the cause of the outage in parts of Lagos, he said: “It’s a general thing; it is a system collapse. It happened yesterday and this morning. All the power plants were shut down.”
