Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) office in Ibesikpo Asutan Local Government Area of Akwa Ibom State has been gutted by fire, a day to a crucial governorship and house of assembly elections in the state.
The cause of the fire remains unknown for now.
A security guard who was on duty at the INEC office told PREMIUM TIMES the fire started around 2 a.m. on Friday.
“We heard an explosion inside the building, when we rushed to check what it was, we saw flames of fire coming from one of the rooms,” the guard said.
“We raised alarm for help, and then we started fighting the fire, using water and sand. But it was too much for us.”
A section of the building still smoldered and election materials apparently evacuated from the burnt building, were scattered around the premises, when a PREMIUM TIMES reporter visited the scene.
Several card readers meant for use in the Saturday’s elections have been destroyed by the fire, PREMIUM TIMES learned.
It is unclear how the incident would affect the conduct of the elections.
