Several uncollected Permanent Voter Cards have been set ablaze by unknown persons who broke into the office of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in Abia State on Sunday.
The Resident Electoral Commissioner, Joseph Iloh, confirmed this to Channels Television on Sunday.
According to him, about 15,000 uncollected PVCs were burnt as well as the register containing the number of registered voters.
Iloh, however, said that the Commission has the authentic list of registered voters at its headquarters in Umuahia, the state capital.
The Police, on the other hand, say they are investigating the matter and the perpetrators of the crime will be brought to book.
The incident is coming just days to the general elections.
