INEC disclosed this in a statement by Festus Okoye, the INEC National Commissioner & Chairman, Information and Voter Education Committee.
According to Okoye, the arson attack took place at about 11:30am.
The office, which was built and commissioned shortly before the 2019 general elections, was substantially burnt.
