Nigeria plunged in to darkness by power grid meltdown as millions watched World Cup build-up on TV


Local media reported a total collapse of "all the nation's power plants."

The report said: "A top executive of one of the nation’s electricity distribution companies, told our correspondent on condition of anonymity that the national grid first collapsed on Friday.


"When contacted to find out the cause of the outage in parts of Lagos he said 'It’s a general thing; it is a system collapse'.

"'It happened yesterday and this morning. All the power plants were shut down'.”
