Police Confirm Burning Of INEC Office In Abia LGA

The Police Public Relations Officer, Abia command SP Geoffrey Ogbonna, has confirmed the burning down of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) office in Isiala-Ngwa South Local Government Area of Abia.

Ogbonna confirmed the incident to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Aba on Sunday, adding that the fire occurred on Saturday night. He said that information available to the police showed that the fire started from the toilet and extended to the office, where the Permanent Voter Cards (PVCs) were stored.

The police spokesman said that some of the PVCs were already destroyed before the fire was eventually put out on Sunday morning. He said that the number of damaged PVCs had yet to be ascertained. Ogbonna, who spoke from the scene of the fire, said that the command had commenced investigation to ascertain the cause of the fire.

Speaking further, the Head of Public Affairs of the commission in Abia, Mr Bamidele Oyetunji, said that police had taken over the investigation of the incident. Oyetunji said that the police were in a better position to find the perpetrators of the dastardly act and that the commission was not suspecting any politician or its member of staff.

From the nation


  1. How can the fire just start from the toilet?
    Do they keep petrol there?
    By now police should have been stationed at Inec offices.
    Election is in few days, we don't want a repeat of what happened in Osun
