Abia State Government has uncovered plots by some hoodlums hired by desperate political actors to burn down Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) facilities in Obingwa, Ugwunagbo, Isiala Ngwa South, Ukwa East, Ukwa West and Osisioma local government areas of the State.
We wish to call on all those involved in the dastardly plot to desist from such nefarious activities even as we urge our youths not to allow themselves be used to perpetrate such a heinous crime.
Security agencies in the state, especially the Nigeria Police Force, are hereby called upon to ensure that the targeted facilities and others in the state are adequately protected before, during and after the remaining elections.
Chief John Okiyi Kalu
Honorable Commissioner For Information, Abia State
