Osun Communities Lament Four Months Electricity Blackout by Traplord09: 7:47pm On Sep 23, 2021
Six communities in the Ife North Local Government Area of Osun State have on Thursday lamented the hardship its residents are exposed to due to a four-month electricity outage.

Addressing pressmen on behalf of Ipetumodu, Edunabon, Moro, Yakooyo, Asipa and Akinlalu communities, Mr Sunday Oyebowale, said the lack of electricity had exposed the residents to insecurity and paralysed the economy of the area.

Oyebowale said the blackout was caused by a faulty 7.5MVA substation located in Moro, which supplies all the affected communities.

He said, “It is very sad and very disheartening to note that the Ife-North Local Government has been experiencing total blackout for four months and nothing has been done by the IBEDC to alleviate our problem.

“The total blackout has been encouraging kidnapping of people, also the non-supply of electricity has encouraged theft in the communities. At Asipa community, a shop was looted by thieves who took advantage of the darkness; this same problem had been reported in many areas in the local government.

“Our economic activities have been paralysed as people using electricity to do their daily works find it very difficult to transact their businesses and this needs urgent attention so that the society will not become desolate.

“Ife-North has been known for peace but this absence of light has made it to be a lawless society where different people just come into the Local Government unchallenged at night. Our government and the IBEDC must make sure that positive steps are taken before things get out of hand.”
