Nigeria election: Election office burnt down six days before polls

(COLOMBO, LANKAPUVATH) –An office for Nigeria’s election commission has been burned down just six days before the country is due to vote in a general election.

The fire in Plateau State has destroyed everything needed to vote, including ballot boxes and voting slips.

A spokesperson called it a setback for the preparations for the election but is quoted in This Day as saying that it is too early to suspect sabotage.

The general election is due to be held on Saturday.
