The Executive Director of advocacy group, YIAGA Africa, Samson Itodo has decried the persistent attacks on offices of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), describing it as disturbing.

Itodo, who spoke to newsmen, described the recurring attacks on INEC offices as a waste of taxpayers’ money, adding that same will be used to rebuild the destroyed facilities.

According to him, there has been no fewer than 52 attacks on the electoral body’s offices between 2019 and 2022, including those in Imo State.

Of the incidents, Itodo stated that 15 states of the federation were affected by either suspected cases of arson or gunmen attacks, lamenting that the continuous attacks on INEC’s offices were designed to ensure that elections do not hold in those areas and that in turn will affect the credibility of the poll.

He stressed that the situation must be tackled decisively to ensure that the investment in the democratic process is worthwhile.
