Blackout looms in Kwara, Oyo, Ogun, others as IBEDC disconnects electricity over accumulated debts

The Ibadan Electricity Distribution Company has alerted consumers within its franchise area of an imminent blackout from next month over backlogs of unpaid bills.

The IBEDC, a power distribution company, said it was planning to disconnect its feeders from the national grid due to poor remittances.

Consumers to be affected by the development are those in Kwara, Ogun, Osun, Ibadan, Oyo and parts of Kogi, Ekiti and Niger states.

A statement signed by the IBEDC Managing Director, Kingsley Achife, and made available to newsmen in Ilorin said the move might result in power outages to customers within the IBEDC franchise areas.
