The Transmission Company of Nigeria, on Sunday, declared that one of its critical infrastructures, the Shiroro-Katampe 330kV transmission line, was vandalised, making it the fifth of such incidents between February and March this year, leaving the country in the perpetual blackout.

On February 28, it was reported that vandals destroyed Tower 70 along its 330kV Gwagwalade-Katampe Transmission line in Abuja, making it the third transmission tower to be vandalised by vandals within five days, of that time.

The continued destruction of TCN towers is raising concern among stakeholders, as some persons have called on the Federal Government to deploy security agents to the transmission company to investigate the incessant situation.
