Two persons said to be workers of the Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) were injured when their vehicle struck a landmine planted by Boko Haram terrorists in Kaga Local Government Area of Borno State.
According to sources the explosion occurred when engineers from the TCN and Yola Electricity Distribution Company (YEDC) were commuting to a site where they intend to restore the power situation in Maiduguri, Borno State capital.
The victims, who sustained severe injuries of varying degrees, are currently receiving treatment at the University of Maiduguri Teaching Hospital (UMTH), Borno State.

The situation has also reportedly caused many electricity dependent businesses to suffer setbacks in the last one month.
