UPDATED: Blackout across Nigeria as national grid collapses


Nigerians were on Thursday morning thrown into darkness after the national grid system collapsed.

Some of the nation’s Distribution Companies confirmed that the grid collapsed in the early hours of Thursday, as most of their feeders are out.

“We are in continuous communication with our partners at the National Control Centre (NCC), Osogbo. You will be updated as we get more information,” the company said in a statement posted on its X handle.

Also, Kano Electricity Distribution Company (KEDCO) said, “We regret to inform you that the current power outage across our network is due to a system collapse from the national grid, which has resulted in our inability to distribute electricity to our esteemed customers.

“We are appealing to our valued customers to kindly bear with us as we monitor the situation and await power restoration from the national grid,” the company said.
