The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) office in Igboeze North Local Government Area of Enugu State has been burnt down by unknown arsonists.

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

It was gathered that 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 The Nation 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.

Igboeze North and its neighboring Igboeze South LGA had been under attack recently by unknown gunmen leading to the state government imposing a 6 pm to 6 am curfew and banning commercial motorcyclists in the affected LGAs.
