Another office of the Independent National Electoral Commission in Awka, Anambra State, was engulfed in flames on Tuesday, making it the third office to be razed in two weeks.
Loads of materials for the presidential and National Assembly elections scheduled for February 16, 2019, were affected by the inferno, which occurred at the INEC office near the Dr. Alex Ekwueme Square in Awka.
Card readers and other sensitive materials for the elections were razed during the incident. The cause of the fire has not been determined as officials of the fire service are still trying to put it out.
Two other INEC offices in Plateau and Abia states had been affected over the last two weeks.
