Some unknown gunmen on Sunday set ablaze the newly-completed office of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) located at Okwudor community in Njaba Local Government Area of Imo State.

The office, which was built and inaugurated shortly before the 2019 general elections, was substantially burnt.
