PDP primaries: Hoodlums raze Abia LG secretariat

A part of Isiala Ngwa South Local Government Area headquarters in Abia State was set ablaze by unknown arsonists in the early hours of Thursday.

This was as the State Governor, Okezie Ikpeazu on Wednesday sacked the Arochukwu LGA Transition Committee Chairman, Emmanuel Kanu, over the PDP primaries in Arochukwu.

Ikpeazu ordered law enforcement agents to apprehend and prosecute all those behind the arson.

Secretary to the State Government, Chris Ezem, while speaking about the incident said, “The state government strongly condemns the act. We will leave no stone unturned in bringing those behind such acts to book.

“It is pertinent to state that government does not wish to expend public fund in rebuilding the burnt facility so as to serve as a stark reminder to those behind the arson of their folly.

“Let it be stated clearly that if the intention of the arsonists was to hinder or stop today’s PDP LGA chairmanship primary, they have failed abysmally as the primary will go ahead as scheduled. Government will not give in to the antics of destructive elements.”
