Unknown persons have burnt down the offices of the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, in Obingwa Local Government Area, Abia State.

According to eye-witnesses, the incident, which occurred at about 1.00p.m. yesterday, razed the entire building, including the store and Electoral Officer’s office.

A resident in the staff quarters at the council headquarters at Mgboko, who declined to have his name on print, told Vanguard that they saw thick smoke emanating from the INEC office and raised alarm, which attracted passers-by.

He added that the fire would have burnt all the buildings, but for the timely intervention of the council workers who quenched it.

“We came back from church and saw a thick smoke around the INEC office. Before we could know what to do, security men had cordoned off the area. The fire nearly spread to the Education and Social Development buildings before it was put out.”

When our correspondent visited the council headquarters at about 4.35p.m, men of the Counter Terrorism Unit, Nigerian Security and Civil Defence Corps, NSCDC, mounted security in the area, even as people strolled in to see the rubbles.
