Fire Takes Down the INEC Electoral Institute... Commission Says No Sensitive Material Was Destroyed

Fire takes down The "Independent National Electoral Commission" INEC’s Electoral Institute in Abuja on saturday being March 13th at arround 11pm at night.

However, reports from the INEC Director of Security, Mr. Shettima Ngilladar made it known that only non sensitive materials used in the 2011 election as well as bags, envelopes, election forms and electrical control panel/ switch were destroyed during the fire incident.

No material to be used for the 2015 election was destroyed. The fire outbreak was attributed to power surge and was recorded to have burned into sunday 2am in the morning.

"There was no power and when power was restored and the alarm was heard, security men and the in-house fire fighting men started going round until they discovered smoke coming from the warehouse where we keep our non-sensitive materials. So, they battled to gain access to the fire to quench it. It started about 11pm and by 2am they were able to put out the fire. Aside our in-house firemen, firemen from FCT Garki and even the NNPC fire service came. But when they came, the fire was already under control. All these people rallied round to help".

"These are non-sensitive materials that have been banned in the warehouse. You will see it yourself. It is not hidden. It is something clear, these banned non-sensitive materials have nothing to do with the elections. They are old materials in store that have not been evacuated. These are old stock of non-sensitive materials, like bags, envelopes, election forms which were used in the 2011 elections. They won’t be used for the 2015 elections. Everything here is non-sensitive.” he said
