The fire which began around 2pm local time, allegedly started from a container bearing election materials dispatched to the centre earlier.

Attempt to speak with the Anambra INEC Resident Electoral Commissioner, Dr Nkwachukwu Orji could not yield any result as he did not take his call, nor did the Public Relations Officer of the Commission, Leo Nkedife responding to calls put across to his phone.
