Speaking with IndyPress, a resident of the area who pleaded anonymity explained that the situation of the cable had persisted ‘since about a week ago, without it being restored to its normal position’.

As a result, passers-by and other road users, whose route from such places like the Great Independence Hall of Residence, Nnamdi Azikiwe Hall of Residence, Tafawa Balewa PG Hall, among others, have had to consciously bend below the cable in order to have their way.

Also, motorists and other road users have had to cautiously pass under the wire  before their to-and-fro transition on the road.

Reacting to the observation, the Students’ Union House Secretary, Elemide Daniel told Indypress that the Director at the Department of Works and Maintenance had been informed about the state of the cable fallout.

“I already discussed this with the Director/Head of Electricals at the Department of Works and Maintenance. He said it will be done today unfailingly” UI’SU House Secretary said.
