FG Linked suspected volcanic eruption to Leakage of Current on High Tension Wire.

The Federal government of Nigeria has revealed that the erupted hot molten material suspected to be volcanic magma around Katampe, Abuja on October 3, was not volcanic.

Addressing press briefing in Abuja, the government, through the Director-General, Nigerian Geological Survey Agency Alex Nwegbu linked it to a high leakage of current that melted a 33 Kilo-volt-ampere high tension power line.

Alex said the currents generated so much temperature to the range of between 1000 and 2000 degree centigrade, which was high enough to melt the material upon which the electric pole was seated.
