Freshly In: Another INEC office gutted by fire


Fire has gutted another Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) office in Nigeria’s southern region.

The police command in Enugu, according to its preliminary investigations, says a power surge caused the fire outbreak at the INEC Obollo-Afor office.

On Sunday night, INEC’s office at Ohafia local government area in Abia was on fire, according to the INEC National Commissioner and Chairman, Information and Voter Education Committee, Festus Okoye, in a statement issued on Monday via Twitter.

Following the Enugu incident, the police have cordoned off the area for further investigations to determine the specific cause of the fire and the extent of its damage.

The police spokesman in Enugu, Daniel Ndukwe, said this in a statement this morning.
