Officials and residents say the northeastern Nigerian city of Maiduguri has been thrown into darkness anew after jihadists blew up electricity towers just days after power was restored.
Residents in the city of three million people reported a new power outage had occurred before dawn Saturday, but did not know immediately it had been caused by a new attack.
However, the Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) reported Sunday that there had been a new incident of sabotage.
Electricity was on Wednesday restored to Maiduguri for the first time in two months following sabotage of a power grid by Islamic State West Africa Province (ISWAP) jihadists.
Journalist Jack Vince in Maiduguri has been telling my colleague Abdullahi Hassan more about the latest attack and its impact on residents of the city.
