Sequel to last night's four disaster at the Jos Electricity Distribution Company's main power plant, it  is feared that five northern Nigerian states might continually experience power failure.

The facility's 150MVA power plant estimated at N20million was gutted by fire at about 4pm local time.

The company is the major distributor of electrical energy in Plateau, Gombe, Bauchi and Benue States.

Its Kilometre 7 transmission station, Zaria Road  in the Central Nigerian city reportedly went into flames following electrical faults.

Although details of the disaster were still sketchy as at press time, men of the fire service had succeeded in battling the inferno.

A statement by the company's Head of Corporate Communications, Dr. Friday Adakole last night appealed for calm.

A team of engineers were mobilised to the scene towards restoring power within the "shortest possible time", according to the statement.

Power supply resumed in most parts of Jos city at about 10pm, local time but repeatedly seized in minutes.
