She said that TCN in-house engineers had also embarked on a patrol to trace the fault with a view of restoring supply to the affected states.

She said that the engineering maintenance crew had completed the patrol of the Jos axis of the transmission line on the same day, but was unable to complete the Gombe axis because darkness had taken over.

She, however, said that the transmission lines patrol crew completed the remaining patrol of the Gombe axis at 10:24 a.m. and energised the line by 11:30 a.m. on Sept 23.

“TCN expressed gratitude to the governors and good people of the northeastern states for their patience and understanding during the period of the outage.”
