Gunmen Set Ablaze Imo High Court, Destroy Files
Gunmen on Saturday set ablaze the building of Imo State high court in Orlu, reportedly burning part of the structure housing sensitive documents.
The development is coming few days after some gunmen attacked the headquarters of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in Owerri, which the police said was carried out by the Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB).
It was gathered that the complex is housing both the high court and a magistrates’ court.
The Orlu high court is close to a security check point as well as the police divisional headquarter
In 2018, the high court was razed. On December 1, the Orlu office of INEC was set ablaze in the same manner.
