The Abuja Electricity Distribution Company (AEDC), has blamed the disruption of power supply in parts of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT) on vandals.

Mr Oyebode Fadipe, AEDC General Manager, Corporate Communications said this in a statement on Sunday in Abuja.

“Others include the National Stadium, Feeds Milipat Filling Station, part of Indoor Stadium, Kuchingoro, Karamajigi, King Park Estate, Royal Ancor Estate, DSS Quarters, Wilbahi Estate, Wuye, Utako and environs,” he said.

He said that the outage was caused by the activities of vandals on the 330/132 kilo Volt (KV) Gwagwalada/Kukwaba line.

He said that while the maintenance crew of the Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) was already working on the vandalised section of the 330kV/132kV line, efforts were being made to backfeed customers from Apo.
