Eko Electricity Distribution Company (EKEDC) says the electricity outage in Victoria Island was caused by a breaker problem at Alagbon Transmission Substation in Lagos.
Mr. Godwin Idemudia, the General Manager, Corporate Communications, EKEDC, in a statement on Monday in Lagos, said the problem had put Ademola Injection substation out of power supply since morning.
“As we speak 50 percent of our customers in Victoria Island including Eko Hotel and Suites are in darkness,’’ the general said.
Idemudia said that the engineers from the company were working hard to ensure the breaker was replaced.
The general manager also apologised for the inconvenience that the outage would have caused customers within the area.
