Nigeria’s largest power distribution company Ikeja Electric Plc has cut off supply to the Agege 33KV feeder.

Ikeja Electric (IE) did this due to safety measures as the Double Circuit Powerline Tower located in Shagari Estate, Alimosho Local Government has been affected by erosion and is at risk of collapse.

The company said the outage will temporarily affect residents in Abule Egba, Tabon-Tabon, Pen Cinema, Orile, Power Line, National Youth Service Corps (NYSC), Arigbanla and environs, and cautioned residents of the area against carrying out activities around where the Power Tower is situated.

IE’s Head of Corporate Communications, Felix Ofulue while speaking on the development explained that the company needed to take that approach as safety of lives and properties is paramount in all its operations.

He said: “Cutting power supply on the tower is a “safety-first” approach to ensure that no live is endangered. The base structure of the pole is quite solid as it rests on pile foundation. However, we want to appeal to residents affected by the outage to be patient as technical teams are working on back feeding their location through alternative feeders”.

He further explained that the company was in talks with Lagos State Emergency Management Agency (LASEMA) and other relevant agencies over ways to contain the situation.

He noted that persistent rains and weak soil structure had caused an increase in cases of fallen poles, snapped wires and fault related outages. He called on residents to remain vigilant and careful especially during rains.

We have issued multiple rain/inclement weather alerts across all our publicity media which provide some guideline for our customers on what to do in case of an emergency or accident”, he said.

He advised customers to visit the company website for weather updates and alerts.
