The management of Jos Electricity Distribution said there would be power outage in Makurdi, the Benue capital, on Tuesday to enable them to carry out repair works.

The 33KV electricity tower, which supplies power to Makurdi, was recently vandalised.

This is contained in a statement by JED spokesman Adakole Elijah in Makurdi on Friday.

He said the outage would enable the technical team to fix the tilted tower near the Lower Benue River Basin Development Authority in Makurdi.

“Feeders that will be affected are 33kV Barracks Road and North Bank. The outage is expected to commence from 9:00 a.m., and power will be restored as soon as the work is completed,” Mr Elijah stated.

He added, “We appeal to our customers who will be affected by this outage to kindly bear with us. Thank you for your patience and understanding as we strive to serve you better.”
