Hoodlums have burnt down the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) office in Igboeze North Local Government Area of Enugu State.
The incident occurred on Sunday night when the arsonists stormed the office situated at the council’s headquarters in Ogurute.
It is understood that the state fire service could not put out the inferno until the entire building was razed down.
It was also gathered that parts of the local government had been under attacks recently by unknown gunmen wreaking havoc in the southeastern region.
Enugu State and most parts of the southeast have experienced unrest in the past months, leaving government structures, especially INEc offices destroyed.
The Enugu State government had recently imposed a 6 pm to 6 am curfew and banned commercial motorcyclists in the Igboeze North and its neighbouring Igboeze South LGAs.
