There was pandemonium in Udenu L.G.A. of Enugu state on Thursday night, May 13, as the Independence National Electoral Commission (INEC) office at the Obollo-Afor area was gutted by fire.

According to a statement released by the spokesperson of the state police command, ASP Daniel Ndukwe, operatives attached to the Udenu police division received a distress call at about 9pm saying there was a fire outbreak at the INEC office. He said the officers immediately raced to the scene, while contacting Fire Service Office in the area to promptly put out the fire.

According to Ndukwe, preliminary investigation suggests that the fire, which was eventually put out before it could spread to other offices around the building, may have been caused by a power surge due to a sudden power supply to the building.

The police spokesperson added that the state Commissioner of Police, CP Mohammed Ndatsu Aliyu, has ordered the cordoning off of the scene and launch of a thorough investigation to further ascertain the actual cause of the fire outbreak and damages incurred.
