The Independent National Electoral Commission’s office in Obingwa Local Government Area of Abia, was this morning razed by fire.

According to News Agency of Nigeria’s (NAN) reports, the fire destroyed documents, furniture and other valuables in the office leaving only the wall of the building and remains of materials made of steel.

A witness, Chinyere Akwarandu, an official of the local government council said a corps member alerted him of the fire at 11 a.m.

Akwarandu said the NYSC member serving with the INEC reported that the building was on fire.

On arrival at the scene, efforts were made to put out the fire but the force of the inferno later prompted them to attempt to prevent it from extending to other buildings in the council secretariat.

”We tried what we could to stop it but it was too fierce for us. Earlier, we had called the fire service but they told us they had no diesel to drive their truck,” the witness said.
