Some unidentified hoodlums have attacked and set ablaze the Council headquarters of Ezza North local government area of Ebonyi State.
The attack was confirmed by Mr. Ogodo Ali Nomeh who was sworn in as Chairman of the LGA a month ago.
Confirming the attack, Nomeh said the hoodlums engaged the security operatives manning the council in a gun battle, and that some of the hoodlums sustained gunshot injuries.
According to him: “we have not arrested anybody now. You know the thing happened in the night and before we came out this morning, they already escaped.
“There were so much gunshots. And I think that so many of them were injured. So, we are moving from one hospital to another to check for people that sustained gunshot injuries.
“We are not suspecting anybody for now, until we apprehend the suspects. You know the thing happened around 2;00am in the morning.
“We are talking with security operatives that had an encounter with the hoodlums” he stressed.
