Suspected Thugs Burn Section of LG Headquarters in Abia |

According to the Daily Post, some unknown criminals have caused serious unrest in Abia state.

Criminals burned part of the headquarters of the local government district of Isiala Ngwa in Abia state early Thursday morning.

This was disclosed by the Abia State government and set out in a statement signed by Attorney Chris Ezem, SSG Secretary of State, and provided to reporters in Umuahia.

As a result, the state government ordered law enforcement officials to thoroughly investigate, arrest and prosecute all those behind the cowardly act.

However, he fully condemned such an act of senseless destruction of state property, promising that he would not leave a stone unturned to bring to justice those behind such an act.

According to the statement, “The attention of the government was drawn to the ill-fated fire at the headquarters of the local government district of Isiala-Ngwa-South early in the morning by unknown arsonists.

“It is pertinent to state that the government does not want to spend public funds to rebuild the burned-out facility in a way that serves as a strong reminder to those behind the arson of their madness.”

Continuing, the Abia government added: “Let it be made clear that if the intention of the arsonists was to obstruct or stop the current LGA primary presidency of the PDP, they have failed as the primary will proceed as planned. The government will not succumb to the tricks of destructive elements.

“For the avoidance of doubt, the government wishes to state that no further development will take place at the affected LGA until the facility is rebuilt. Thus, all citizens, especially residents of Isiala Ngwa, South LGA, have a duty to cooperate with the police in their efforts to uncover the identities of those behind this ill-fated act. ”

Meanwhile, at the time of the presentation of this report, the Police Public Relations Officer, PPRO, Abia State Command, Joffrey Ogbonn’s SP were unable to be contacted for comment on the bad scenario.
