In a bid to forestall any threat to safety of lives due to the huge impact of erosion on the Double Circuit Powerline Tower located in Shagari Estate, Alimosho Local Government, power distribution company, Ikeja Electric Plc has cut off power supply to the Agege 33KV feeder.
The company also cautioned residents of the area against carrying out activities around the 33KV Power Tower situated by the Estate canal because it currently at risk of imminent collapse. The outage according to Ikeja Electric Plc. will temporarily affect residents of Abule Egba, Tabon-Tabon, Pen Cinema, Orile, Power Line, NYSC, Arigbanla and its environs. However, IE engineers are currently working to supply the affected areas through alternative power lines.
Consequently, the Ikeja Electric Plc. is in talks with Lagos State Emergency Management Agency (LASEMA) and other relevant agencies over ways to contain the extensive erosion that has occurred in the area.
