Uduma explained that the Court building, documents, and other valuables were completely burnt.

Chairman of Afikpo South Local Government Area, Chima Nkama, also confirmed the incident, saying the matter has been reported to the police.

The burning of Courts in the South-East geopolitical zone is the latest in the series of violent acts perpetrated by non-state actors.
