Nigeria To Experience Total Blackout Any Moment From Now, As Northern Youths Go On Rampage, Set To Blow Up Hydro-Electric Dams

Emerging report indicates that some Northern Youths in Niger State, have threatened to blow up the three hydroelectric dams, over the persistent decline in electricity supply to consumers.

Security Operatives have been gripped with fear by the threat, because similar threat to occupy the Abuja Electricity Development Company, AEDC, offices, issued by the youths, was carried out and resulted in a four-day blackout in Minna and its environs, last December.

The #YouthleadNigeria, had earlier given the AEDC up to January 5, to improve its services, by ensuring uninterrupted supply of electricity for 24 hours daily, or face the consequences.

The Convener of the Group, Mohammed Saidu Etsu, told Journalists that: “AEDC has not met our demands, so we will carry out our actions, including blowing up of the hydroelectric dams in the State.”

According to him: “We will begin sit-out at the Shiroro Transmission Station, in Minna, from Monday (today), and our members throughout the State, will occupy all AEDC offices to show that we are serious about our demands.”

Flanked by other officials of the group, Etsu declared that: “Instead of the AEDC to meet our demands, we are retrogressing, resulting in all businesses collapsing; investors refusing to invest in the State, unemployment increasing by the day.

“We learnt that the Government has met with the AEDC officials and reached an agreement with them; the Government has not briefed us, if we have to change our position, the Government must be ready to be held accountable, and assure us that AEDC will give 24-hour supply of electricity.”
