Hoodlums Raze Down Delta State INEC Office in Ongoing LG Elections
Some youths who are suspected to be party thugs have burnt down the Delta State Independent Electoral Commission at Ughelli amidst the ongoing local government election in the State.
Many persons were injured in the incident but no life was lost as the hoodlums shot indiscriminately. The hoodlums, who wielded dangerous weapons were said to have defied security operatives.
Ughelli North is the country home of Delta State 2015 governorship candidate of the APC, Olorogun O’Tega Emerhor, and the senator representing Delta Central, Chief Ovie Omo-Agege.
Meanwhile, the Chairmanship candidate of the All Progressives Congress for Uvwie LG, Engr. Ufuoma Okenini, has raised the alarm that APC members were under threat by political thugs suspected to be members of another political party.
The building contained sensitive materials for the Local Government Election exercise.
