Outage grounds Benin airport


The disconnection of Benin airport by the Benin Electricity Distribution Company has virtually grounded activities at the gateway.
Users of the airport said that since the place was disconnected from power supply, its terminal and offices have become "very hot."
Responding on Wednesday, the Federal Airports Authority of Nigeria said on Twitter that it was caused by "a general issue."
It reads: We would like to inform the travelling public that we are currently experiencing power outage at Benin Airport, owing to a general issue relating to the power holding company in the state.
"Our engineers are on ground working to upgrade our back up as soon as possible, we sincerely apologize for any inconvenience."
