EASTER CELEBRATION: Nationwide Darkness Hits Nigeria As National Grid Collapsed

Nationwide darkness hit Nigeria as the national grid collapsed for the fourth time in 2024 amid the Easter holidays.

According to sources from electricity distribution companies in Nigeria, the grid collapsed around 4:30 pm on Thursday.

The president of Nigerian Consumer Protection Network, Kunle Olubiyo who confirmed the grid collapse, said that power went off around 4:30 pm on Thursday in Apo, Dawaki, and Utako.

The implication is that millions of homes and businesses centrally managed by Osogbo, Osun State, are without power from the national grid.

As of the time of filing this report, Discos said their feeders were rendered inactive, resulting in widespread blackouts nationwide.
