One of the offices of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in Zamfara State is been reported to have been gutted by fire.
The affected facility is said to be INEC’s office in Kaura Namoda Local Government Area of the state.
Locals told Channels Television that the fire started at about 9pm on Monday and razed almost the entire building.
They said although firefighters arrived at the scene in good time to put out the fire, their efforts were unsuccessful as a result of the lack of water in their tank.
While the cause of the fire could not be immediately ascertained, an eyewitness told Channels Television via telephone on Tuesday May 2, that nothing was removed from the burnt INEC office.
