Our reporter, during a visit Tuesday morning, saw the transformer in an open trailer at the site of the installation at the Transmission Station, near Bayan Kara in Birnin Kebbi.
A team of engineers from Kaduna were also seen disassembling the faulty transformer from the main supply poles.
The Business Manager in charge of the State, Malam Mukhtar Ibrahim, confirmed the development, adding that work has commenced in earnest to replace the faulty one.
