City without electricity – level 2
12 years ago, a fight with militants started in Nigeria, and Nigeria's Borno State became the center of the fight. In January, militants bombed transmission lines which brought power to the capital city of Maidugri, and it left thousands of people without electricity. Workers fixed the lines, but militants destroyed them again. Local businesses used generators which were very expensive, and they harmed the environment. Some people lost their jobs, and they started to work with the militants.
Officers removed bombs from the roads, so it can be possible to fix the power lines soon. A Nigerian oil company also promised that it would build a power plant in the city.
Difficult words: militant (a person who strongly wants to make changes, usually in politics), transmission line (a cable or other structure which takes electricity from one place to another), generator (a machine which makes electricity).
