The headquarters of Aguata LGA in Anambra state has been razed.

TheCable has yet to confirm if casualties were recorded as a result of the attack.

When contacted, Tochukwu Ikenga, police spokesperson in Anambra, confirmed that there was a fire incident in local government council.

He, however, said the fire incident was not as a result of an attack by gunmen.

“The report I have is that fire incident happened in Aguata local government area and our men were quickly deployed to cordon off the area so that hoodlums will not take advantage to commit other crime,” he said.

“Fire service was contacted. As I talk with you right now, the fire has been partially put off and our men are firm on the ground to make sure that the situation doesn’t escalate.

“No life was lost; there is no casualty as operation is ongoing.”

The development comes days after gunmen set fire to the headquarters of Orsu LGA in Imo state.
