Recent disruptions of the transmission line between Akwa Ibom and Cross River states which caused the collapse of the national power grid twice within four hours have been blamed on vandals. Beyond the fact that the country has experienced grid failure several times this year, the vandalism of power lines was simply adding salt to open wounds. Hardly a week passes without either of the 26 electricity generation companies (Gencos), the 11 distribution companies (Discos) and the state controlled transmission company (TCN) trading blame.
