Arson Attack On INEC Office In Abia State


As the final phases of this year’s general election approaches, a lot of incidences has continued to spring up and many of them appear worrisome as they indicate that the polity would be unnecessarily heated if the right measures are not put in place. This trend has continued to sweep across the Nation and Abia State is having her equal share of uncertain incidences.

Reports available to OTV News Desk this morning through our reporter in Umuahia has it that several uncollected permanent voter cards have been set ablaze by unknown persons who broke into the office of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in Abia State in the early hours of today February 3.

The report further reveal that over 15,000 uncollected PVCs were burnt as well as the register containing the number of registered voters which is a worrisome development. It is not yet certain at the moment what precipitated this action, neither has any group or persons come forth to claim responsibility for this dastardly act.

The state police say investigations have commenced and the culprits will be apprehended soon.

They also call for calm and adviced Abians to go about their normal businesses while desisting from any act that will be inimical to the peace that is being enjoyed in Abia State.
