INEC office in Enugu set ablaze             



Hoodlums have razed the Igboeze South Local Government Area office of the Independent National Electoral Commission in Enugu State.

This came barely a week after the INEC State Headquarters was attacked and vehicles and other valuables torched.

It was gathered that the hoodlums arrived at the INEC office located in Ibeagwa Aka at about 10:45pm Sunday and set the office on fire.

The hoodlums were said to have succeeded in burning one of the rooms in the office before the arrival of firefighters.

The Igboeze South attack has brought to three the number of INEC offices in Enugu State that have been set ablaze by arsonists in two weeks.

Chief Fire Officer in the state, Okwudili Ohaa, who confirmed the attack, said the situation had been brought under control.

He said, “There was a fire outbreak at INEC Office, Ibagwa in Igbo-Eze South Local Government Area late Sunday night. We responded promptly, the situation is under control and we have extinguished the fire.

“It was only one room that was affected by the fire.”
