A fire incident has ravaged an office of the Independent National Electoral Commission in Zamfara State, situated in the Kaura Namoda Local Government Area.
Locals told Channels Television that the fire started at about 9 pm on Monday and razed almost the entire building.
They said although firefighters arrived at the scene in good time to put out the fire, their efforts were unsuccessful as a result of the lack of water in their tank.
While the cause of the fire could not be immediately ascertained, an eyewitness told Channels Television via telephone on Tuesday, May 2, that nothing was removed from the burnt INEC office.
Meanwhile, INEC authorities in the region and the national level are yet to issue an official statement regarding the incident.
Also, the Zamfara State Police Command are also yet to confirm the incident.
There was no report of any casualty from the incident.
