With this development, the entire Awka, Agulu, Nise, Awgbu, Aguluizuigbo, Nanka, Umuchu, Achina, Uga, Obodoukwu, Isuofia, Mkpologwu, Adazinuku, Adaziani, Oraukwu, Nnokwa, Alor, Adazienu, Obeledu, Akwaeze, Igboukwu, Oraezi, NAFDAC, Akpamkpisi, Agbadani, Eke Market, Jiodo, Igwe Nri, Nri Boys, Aguluezechukwu Town, Ula, Umuchiana, parts of Ekwulobia, Ihuokpala, Nkolo, parts of Oko Road, Agba, Ekuwlobia Road, Eke Ekwulobia, parts of Stadium Road, Ekekanaya, Ortom Place Hotel, and Bank Road, are out of supply.
