The Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) has said the power supply disruption recently experienced in some areas in Benin City and environs was due to a two meter snake trapped in transformer T23 at the Benin switchyard.
It was revealed that the snake put Nekpennekpen, Ikpoba dam and Akoko feeders out of power supply.
In a press statement signed by the TCN Public Affairs Manager, Elder Rufus Imafidon said normal power supply have been restored to the affected areas and expressed regrets over inconveniences caused by the power interruption.
Elder Rufus added that the inauguration of a 3x33KV feeders at Ajaokuta 132/33KV transmission sub-station has helped to improved power supply to all parts of Kogi State.
He also said the facility was constructed and installed at a cost of N60m.
