Power transmission station station on fire
Security agents, firefighters and other residents are trying to battle the inferno.
The cause of the fire and the extent of damage is yet to be ascertained as at the time of this report on Wednesday.
While there are speculations that the power plant belongs to the Ibadan Electricity Distribution Company (IBEDC), Frank William, Regional Communication Officer, Oyo Region of IBEDC, confirmed that the power plant belongs to Transmission Company of Nigeria (TRC) and not IBDEC as being speculated.
“There is a fire outbreak at TCN Plant in Ring Road Ibadan. I can confirm for you. But, it does not belong to IBDEC. It is under Transition Company of Nigeria.
“Fire fighters are there and I can confirm that there is a high level of damage control”.
The latest fire incident is coming barely twenty four hours after a fire outbreak was recorded along the Akala Expressway Elebu area of Ibadan.
