A former staff of Nigeria’s biggest generation power station has been said to be responsible for the recent drop of about 1,100 megawatts from the country’s total electricity output.
It was alleged that the former staff whose name is yet to be ascertain used to work with the defunct Power Holding Company of Nigeria threw an object into the power plant, which made it trip off, it was learnt.
The defunct PHCN workers had claimed that the management invited about 100 hoodlums in five buses to sack them from the Egbin Housing estate.
Other occupants of the estate include: staff of Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) and workers of Egbin Power Plc.
It was gathered that the unidentified persons removed the roofs of the houses occupied by the former employees apparently without the knowledge of the Chairman of the Board of Egbin Power Plc, Kola Adesina, who was said to be outside the country.
The company is already working assiduously to rectify the fault and restore back the plant for optimum generating power supply.
