The matter, he said, has been reported to the police for investigation.

According to Okoye, the latest incident in Abia State is one too many.

“This is not the first attack on the Commission’s facilities in the State in recent times.

“Five months ago specifically on 13th December 2020, the INEC LGA office in Aba South was completely burnt down while that of Arochukwu LGA was vandalised and ransacked in October 2020.
