He said that the injection substations affected by the flood included Lekki Transmission Station, Agungi , Lekki, Ademola and Anifowoshe.

“However, we are presently working round the clock to restore supply to our esteemed customers,” he said.
Idemudia appealed to the customers to show understanding over the inconvenience the outage had caused.
