Hoodlums set INEC office ablaze

Hoodlums burnt down INEC office in Igboeze North local government area of Enugu state.

The office, situated at the council’s headquarters in Ogurute was set on fire late Sunday night and the affected building was totally burnt.

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.

Sources in the area told our correspondent that by the time security was provided, the fire had completely razed down the building.

The sources added 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.
