According to the TCN, the incident, which took place at Asaba Uchi, Ndokwa East Local Government, has resulted in the reduction of available power to the national grid by about 480MW.

A statement by the company stated that the Okpai – Onitsha 330kV transmission line tripped and the cause of the tripping was traced to tower No 62, which had been vandalized. Two of the four legs of the transmission tower were cut by vandals, causing the tower to hang precariously.

This, it said, poses a major threat to transmission grid integrity as a total collapse of this tower could bring down several other towers along the transmission line route.
