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 the Gombe metropolis.

Mr Oqua Etim, the Commissioner of Police in Gombe confirmed the attack in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Gombe on Saturday.

Quote
“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 of the time of filing this report.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the hoodlums also stole cell phones, backpacks and power banks.
