Police confirm attack on INEC ad hoc staff in Gombe

Date:

The police in Gombe State on Saturday confirmed an attack on the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC)’s ad hoc staff camped at the Tudunwada Primary School, in Gombe metropolis.

Mr Oqua Etim, the Commissioner of Police in the state confirmed the attack in an interview with the Newsmen on Saturday.

”They were attacked by suspected hoodlums. It is very unfortunate, the ad hoc staff moved with materials ahead  of the security personnel. That was the mistake they  made.

“They were trying to settle in before other colleagues who were to go with the security team from the INEC office.

“Unfortunately the hoodlums took advantage of that. We have taken steps to ensure that such a situation doesn’t occur again.

“This has never happened. We planned that as they leave the INEC office as a team, they will be escorted to their various locations.”

All attempts made to get INEC’s reaction on the matter failed.

All calls made to INEC Public Affairs Officer in the state, Mohorret Bigun, were not returned as at the time of filing this report.
