Factual Reportage

The Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) has announced that the rehabilitation and re-stringing of the four vandalized towers along the Jos–Gombe 330kV transmission line supplying bulk power to substations in the region have been completed.

TCN’s General Manager, Public Affairs, Mrs. Ndidi Mbah made this disclosure in a statement on Tuesday in Abuja.

It is exactly one month and 12 days that the towers along Jos-Gombe 330KV transmission line was said to have been vandalized, leaving most part of the Northeast in ephemeral darkness.

However, the statement issued on Tuesday, explained that the re-stringing of conductors was completed on Monday 3rd June, 2024, and contractors have reconnected the jumper on tower 282, making it ready for the transmission of bulk electricity.

The statement read in parts, “Recall that when the vandalized towers were discovered on April 22, 2024. TCN promptly mobilized contractors and TCN supervising engineers to the site of the incident to immediately commence repairs.

“Initially, TCN had promised to complete the repairs and restore supply by May 27, 2024. However, the collapse of the fourth tower during the re-stringing process delayed the completion. The four towers have since been completed, and the line is now ready for bulk power transmission.

“TCN appreciates the patience and support of the governors and people in the North Eastern part of the nation during the period of the tower reconstruction work.”
