Police foil attempt to set Enugu INEC office ablaze

Unknown gunmen on Sunday night, May 16, attempted to set the Enugu Headquarters of the Independence National Electoral Commission (INEC) ablaze but were resisted by joint security operatives.

A statement by ASP Daniel Ndukwe, spokesperson of the state police command, said the State Fire Service personnel helped in quenching the fire already set on four (4) vehicles and two (2) cushions within the office premises while the state Commissioner of Police, CP Mohammed Ndatsu Aliyu, psc, came to the scene alongside Heads of other Security Agencies in the State, as they 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.

The incident happened barely one week after the agency’s office in Obollo-Afor, Udenu was razed.
