The Enugu Electricity Distribution Company has announced a system collapse in the South East, which, it said, had affected supply in its franchise areas in the zone.

The Head, Corporate Communications, EEDC, Emeka Ezeh, disclosed this in a statement on Wednesday in Enugu.

Ezeh said: “EEDC wishes to inform her esteemed customers that the loss of supply currently being experienced is as a result of a general system collapse which occurred at 11:27a.m. today, Wednesday, July 20.

“This was restored, but at 2:52pm another partial collapse occurred.

“As a result, we are currently at zero allocation and our customers in Abia, Anambra, Ebonyi, Enugu and Imo are out of supply.

“The company is on standby, awaiting signal from the National Control Centre (NCC) for restoration of supply.”
