The cause of the collapse is yet to be ascertained as the Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) has commenced emergency operations to detect the cause.

A statement by one of the electricity distribution companies reads:

The Enugu Electricity Distribution Company PLC (EEDC) wishes to inform her esteemed customers of a system collapse which occurred at 10:51am today, 26th September,2022. This has resulted to the loss of supply currently being experienced across the network.
