Again, Boko Haram bombs power supply to Borno | NN NEWS

The Islamic Jihadist, Boko Haram has again bombed electricity supply to Borno for the third time in two months. 

According to Daily Sun, sources say the insurgents planted explosives around electricity towers at the outskirts of Maiduguri early Saturday. The explosion destroyed some high tension wires, multiple security. 

Efforts to confirm the power situation from the Maiduguri office of the Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) did not yield any result as the reporter was told at the gate ‘no official was available.’ 

Electricity supply to Maiduguri and its environs was restored on Thursday after seven weeks of total black-out 

Electricity supply to the state was cut off on January 26 after Boko Haram destroyed two electricity towels along Maiduguri -Damaturu highway. 

TCN technical staff had barely reinstalled the towel mid-February when more towers collapsed. It was not clear if Boko Haram explosives were also responsible but efforts to reinstall them again were frustrated by the insurgents. The technicians had stepped on IEDs, a development which put works on the electricity on hold until Thursday when power was eventually restored.
