2 electoral offices burn down a few days before Nigeria’s presidential election

Lagos, Nigeria (CNN)Two Nigerian electoral commission offices housing voting materials were burned down within the space of a week — just a few days before the country’s presidential election, the nation’s electoral body said Sunday.

Nigeria’s Independent Electoral Electoral Commission said more than 10,000 permanent voters’ cards and 755 ballot boxes were destroyed in two fire incidents in Abia and Plateau states last week.
The INEC did not say who was responsible for the fires, but it said it had notified the Acting Inspector General of Police on the “emerging trend of burning the electoral commissions’ offices” days before the February 16 vote.
