Several communities in Ifo, Ota, and Ilaro axis of Ogun state have been plunged into blackout due to power outage.
Ibadan Electricity Distribution Company (IBEDC) blames the power outage on explosion in its 33kv feeder pillar in Ota industrial axis.
The explosion caused power outage in several electricity transformers in Ota, Ilaro, Ifo, Papalanto, and Ijoko.

IBEDC said the explosion was caused by a snap of cable on the Ota industrial 33 kv feeder.
