A statement released by the INEC reads "In the early hours of today, Friday 1st December 2023, around 3.30 am, gunmen attacked the residence of our Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC) in Lokoja, Kogi State.

"The armed men engaged the security personnel in a gun battle for over 30 minutes until reinforcement arrived.

"While no lives were lost, property was destroyed in the ensuing gun battle. A team of combined security personnel have been deployed to protect the residence. This incident occurred a day after a mob besieged our state office.

INEC called on the security agencies in the country to launch a full pledge investigation into the incident and reinforce the security of its staff and assets in Kogi State.

"We call for a thorough investigation and enhanced security protection for our personnel and assets in Kogi State," INEC tipped the security agencies.
