Suspected hoodlums have attacked the camp of ad hoc staff of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) at Tudunwada Primary School in the Gombe metropolis.

No fewer than three phones, backpacks, and power banks were carted away by attackers.

Three persons have been also rushed to the hospital having sustained machete cuts, while others are nursing varying injuries in the attack which occurred on Friday night.

A witness said the hoodlums made away with the phones of some of his colleagues who were trained to conduct the Presidential and National Assembly Elections scheduled to hold on Saturday.

He disclosed that many of them were injured following the attack while trying to flee for safety.

“The police and the school guard were nowhere to be found. They went with phones belonging to my colleagues. I sustained injuries while trying to escape,” the eyewitness was quoted as saying.

The spokesperson of the police command in Gombe state, Mahid Abubakar, has reportedly confirmed the incident.

He added that he just received a distress call about the same place.
