For nearly two months Maiduguri has been off the national grid after Boko Haram bombed some power stations and transmission lines outside the city.

When repairs commenced, the insurgents laid land mines, which injured officials of the Transmission Company of Nigeria.

While repairs have progressed under heavy military escort, residents and business owners now have to rely on their power generating sets for electricity.
