Attempt To Set INEC Office In Enugu Ablaze Foiled By Police

Unknown armed men on Sunday night, May 16, attempted to set the Enugu Headquarters of the Independence National Electoral Commission (INEC) ablaze but were stiffly resisted by joint security operatives, who swiftly mobilized to the scene, IgbereTV reports.

A statement by ASP Daniel Ndukwe, spokesperson of the state police command, said the State Fire Service personnel, who promptly responded to calls put across to them, helped in quenching fire already set on four (4) vehicles and two (2) cushions within the office premises.

He said the state Commissioner of Police, CP Mohammed Ndatsu Aliyu, psc, who immediately raced to the scene alongside Heads of other Security Agencies in the State, has ordered the emplacement of adequate security within the precincts of the office and the launch of a full-scale investigation to unravel the mystery behind the act as well as fish out the assailants.

Ndukwe further stated that the police boss has asked law-abiding citizens of the State to remain vigilant and promptly volunteer useful information that will help the Police in the investigation.

It could be recalled that the agency’s office in Obollo-Afor, Udenu was razed barely a week ago.
