Electricity supply: TCN raises alarm over planned attack on facility

The Transmission Company of Nigeria has raised the alarm about a planned attack on its facility in the Zuba Area of the Federal Capital Territory amid an erratic electricity supply.

Ndidi Mbah, the General Manager of Public Affairs at TCN, disclosed this in a statement over the weekend.

The company said aside from gas supply constraints, vandalism of its facility has been a significant challenge to electricity stability in Nigeria.

Accordingly, TCN stressed that incidents of vandalism surged in the first quarter of 2024, which had disrupted transmission operations.

TCN called on residents to be vigilant and report unsuspecting activities around critical power facilities to ensure an uninterrupted power supply.

“…In addition to gas supply challenges, TCN faces various sector-specific hurdles; some impact other players in the value chain but invariably affect grid stability.

Vandalism is a persistent challenge, as seen in the first quarter of 2024 alone, in which five significant vandalism incidents disrupted transmission operations, necessitating emergency repairs and, in some cases, complete tower reconstruction and transmission line replacement due to acts of vandalism.

These highlight the critical need for increased community support and vigilance in protecting transmission infrastructure.

TCN urges heightened vigilance, particularly in the Zuba area, following alerts of a planned attack on TCN facilities in Zuba.

We implore residents to remain vigilant and report any suspicious activities around power facilities in the area to safeguard the integrity of our infrastructure and ensure uninterrupted power supply to all.

Again, we urge everyone, especially those close to TCN towers nationwide, to please join hands with TCN in safeguarding power transmission towers and cables,” it said.

Recall that on March 28, 2024, the country experienced a nationwide blackout.
