Police react to Abia INEC office fire, say unknown miscreants behind attack
The Abia state police command has stated that it has launched full investigation into the fire at the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) office in Ohafia.
Recall that suspected hoodlums had burned the Abia state INEC office, destroying all electoral materials and office equipment.
This is coming days after one of the commission’s offices in Akwa Ibom was razed.
Speaking on the development, the police public relations officer in the state, Godfrey Ogbonna said the attack was carried out by unknown miscreants.
He said they were repelled by the combined efforts of the police and army.
“The people in the neighbourhood said the attack was carried out by unknown miscreants,” he said.
“There was no casualty because security men guarding the office ran into the 14 Army Brigade barracks for safety, when the attackers arrived at the place.”
