Barely a week to the July 30 inconclusive rerun in Rivers State, the office of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) was bombed yesterday in Bori-Ogoni, the traditional headquarters of Ogoniland and the seat of Khana Local Government Area of the state.

Rivers Elected Councilors Forum in the 8th Legislative Assembly, through its Secretary, Ekine Nkrokeokia, accused desperate politicians of being behind the arson, and urging security agencies to ensure thorough investigation.
