The attackers of the INEC office use bombs and dynamite, says IGP

The Inspector-General of Police (IGP), Usman Baba, has urged police officers in Ebonyi State to put an end to the ongoing burning of the offices of the Independent National Electoral Commission.

According to the News Agency of Nigeria, Baba issued the order on Friday in Abakaliki while addressing police personnel as part of his visit to the state.

He urged the personnel to do everything in their power to protect INEC facilities and other state public facilities.

“The mode of attack by these hoodlums is complex because they throw bombs and dynamite, among others, from distances.

“We believe that in addition to providing physical security at the INEC offices, you should liaise with its officials to provide offices for our personnel,” he said.

The IG also advised INEC to consider relocating its offices or important materials to safer places.

He said, “Existing INEC offices across the state should be relocated to safer places if possible, but if not, important materials should be relocated to safer places.”
