Suspected hoodlums have reportedly set the Imo state secretariat of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC) on fire.
The Nation reports that secretarial equipment, including files and documents have been destroyed.
As at the time of filing this report, no fire fighter was seen or ground.
The state party chairman, Hilary Eke, when contacted was said to have confirmed the incident.
He reportedly claimed that the hoodlums attacked the secretariat at about 6.30pm on Friday, May 11.
“I have already petitioned the inspector general of police over the attack on the secretariat the other Saturday. My duty is to report to the police and the police have the duty to investigate,” he was quoted to have said.
The APC in Imo state has been embroiled in controversy over the recently concluded ward congresses in which some people are said to have hijacked sensitive materials meant for the exercise.
Recall that it was reported that Governor Rochas Okorocha on Sunday, May 6, ordered the arrest and arraignment of the committee members sent to monitor the All Progressives Congress (APC) ward congresses on Saturday, May 5.
Okorocha reportedly took the action, despite the state chairman of the party, Hilary Eke and the state organising secretary, Clement Chijioke Anozie, rating the exercise as successful in all the 305 wards in the 27 LGAs of the state.
