Nigeria's electricity grid on Sunday experienced multiple tripping, leading to the collapse of the system, an official of the Transmission Company of Nigeria(TCN) has said

Mrs Mbah said TCN had since commenced grid restoration; power has been successfully restored to every part of the country, except Calabar, Ugwuaji, Markurdi, Jos, Gombe, Yola and Maidugiri axes.

"Effort is, however, ongoing to ensure full restoration nationwide.

"Considering that the grid had been relatively stable in the last couple of months," she said.
