Hoodlums, Tuesday night set two Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) offices ablaze in Ebonyi State.
The affected offices were those in Ezza North and Ebonyi Local Government Areaand.
A senior staff of INEC who doesn’t want his name on print, noted that the hoodlums set the buildings ablaze when workers had already gone home after the day’s work.
He revealed that items destroyed in the fire were documents and other office equipment, even as he described the incident as “unfortunate, unpatriotic and regrettable”.
He assured that plans have been concluded to beef up security at INEC offices in other local governments in the state to forestall another attack.
It was gathered that no casualties were recorded, but the buildings and office facilities were destroyed.
It will be recalled that INEC offices are presently being targeted by hoodlums after several attacks had been carried out on police facilities in the state.
