African Examiner reports that the mystery inferno had destroyed part of the building

It was learnt that the building would have been completely razed down if not for the intervention of men of the Enugu State fire service who arrived on time to quickly curtail the disaster.

 The Enugu State Police public Relations officers PPRO, Daniel Ndukwe (ASP), confirmed the incident to African Examiner Friday morning.

He said “following a distress call at Udenu Police Divisional Headquarters of Enugu State Command on 13/05/2021 at about 2140hrs, alleging that there was fire outbreak at the Obollo-Afor Office of the Independence National Electoral Commission (INEC) in Udenu L.G.A. of the State, Operatives attached to the Division immediately raced to the place, while contacting Fire Service Office in the area to promptly put out the fire.

According to him, “Preliminary investigation suggests that the fire, which was eventually put out before it could spread to other offices around the building, through the combined efforts of the State Fire Service, the Police and law-abiding citizens, may have been caused by power surge due to sudden power supply to the building.

“Meanwhile, the Commissioner of Police Mohammed Ndatsu Aliyu, has launched thorough investigation to further ascertain the actual cause of the fire outbreak and damages incurred.
