The Abuja Electricity Distribution Company (AEDC), says that it cuts-off electricity supply most times when it rains to save lives, properties and to protect its equipment.

Oyebode Fadipe,AEDC's General Manager, Corporate Communications, gave the explanation while speaking with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Sunday in Abuja.

"The issue of electricity supply going off especially when it rains could be viewed from two perspectives, which could be electricity lines and poles being pulled down by the rains or some other major interruption.

"To avoid any form of destruction to lives and properties, the system is programmed to go off when it's about to rain.

"Customers would have also observed that after rain, attempt is made to restore the supply which is called flashing"
