Data from the Independent System Operator, an arm of the Transmission Company of Nigeria , showed that only one electricity company, Ibom Power, was active when the grid collapsed.

Dr Friday Elijah, Head of Corporate Affairs for Jos Electricity Distribution Company , said: “The current outage being experienced is a result of a loss of power supply from the national grid.”
