“I am also out of office but they just reported to me that two transformers have been affected but one is still working. It’s in service. There is a new one which is yet to be commissioned, that one is also not affected.”

When asked whether power will still be transmitted via the station, he said, “it will not stop electricity transmission since one is still working.

Although now it’s withdrawn but electricity could be restored after everything is brought under control.

The Public Relations Officer, Kano Fire Service, Saminu Yusif Abudullahi, could not be reached as at the time of filing this report as calls put across to his phone rang out severally.
