The political thugs set ablaze vehicles at the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC office in Obot Akara Local Government Area of the state on the eve of the rescheduled presidential election.

Upon interrogation, they indicted two members of the State Executive Council and a member of the House of Assembly, as their sponsors.

On Friday night, two persons were shot dead and about thirteen vehicles destroyed after some hoodlums attacked INEC office in Obot-Akara Local Government Council of Akwa Ibom State.

It was gathered that the victims died as a result of gun battle between the hoodlums and the security personnel on election duties at Nto Edino, the headquarters of Obot-Akara, during the distribution of sensitive materials for the postponed Presidential and National Assembly elections.

An eyewitness, who spoke to some journalists on condition of anonymity, said security has been beefed up in the area as fear and confusion had enveloped the community of Obot-Akara.
