Four high tension towers supplying electricity along Damaturu-Maiduguri have been destroyed by suspected members of ISWAP fighters.
The electric towers were destroyed at Garin Kuturu village, which is about two kilometres from Auno, an area constantly terrorised by the insurgents.
According to reports, the attack on the facilities started on Friday evening around 7 pm and lasted up to 10 pm after which the four power lines were destroyed.
The group had earlier destroyed several power lines thereby cutting off Maiduguri metropolis from enjoying supply for about nine months.
This latest setback also comes barely a month after the NNPC commenced the building of a gas plant to provide electricity to the states in the Northeast.
