Another national grid collapse has resulted in a nationwide blackout, CityNews has learned.

CityNews gathered that the national electricity grid collapsed around 11:31 a.m. on Tuesday.

This is coming barely a week after Nigerians experienced a blackout over the electricity grid collapse.

According to Emeka Ezeh, the Head of Corporate Communications, at Enugu Electricity Distribution Company, EEDC, the company lost supply from the grid around 11:31 a.m. on Tuesday.

“In fact, since about 11.31 a.m., we lost supply. There has not been supply in our network.

That’s our situation, but no concrete confirmation yet that it is due to a system collapse”, he said.
