Awka – The Enugu Electricity Distribution Company (EEDC) attributes loss of power supply to Awka, Anambra and its environs to problems at the Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) Station in Awada near Onitsha.

Mr Emeka Ezeh, Head Communications Department of EEDC disclosed this in a statement on Friday.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that there had been total blackout in Awka and neighboring towns since Sunday.
