Unknown gunmen set fire to the Federal High Court in Abakaliki, Ebonyi State, Nigeria’s south-east.

The structure is situated on the Enugu-Abakaliki Highway, directly across from the state office of the Peoples Democratic Party.

A source told our correspondent that hoodlums used petrol bombs in the attack on Tuesday.

The court building’s library and security post were also affected by the early-morning fire.

Firefighters were later sent to the scene to put out the fire before it could spread and cause further damage.

The assault, which destroyed court documents in the library, resulted in no casualties.

Loveth Odah, the state’s police spokesman, confirmed the incident.

She said that the attackers arrived in large groups to carry out the assault.

Most South-east and South-south states have been dealing with serious security issues, including a wave of attacks on security agencies.
