The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) office in Igboeze North Local Government Area of Enugu State has been set ablaze by hoodlums.
The Nation reports that the office, situated at the council’s headquarters in Ogurute was set on fire late Sunday night. The affected building was severely burnt.
According to The Nation, the state fire service which has an office at Ogurute could not move in to save the situation for fear of further attacks until security was provided.
According to sources as reported by The Nation, by the time security was provided, the fire had completely razed down the building.
The sources said that the only thing the two fire trucks from Nsukka and Ogurute were able to do was to prevent the fire from spreading to nearby offices.
