The office of the Electoral Commission in the Fomena Constituency in the early hours of Tuesday was up in flames.

It is unclear what caused the incident but reports suggest it happened at the time some youth in the area were very agitated.

Reports suggest that the disgruntled youth had attempted to enter the Coalition Centre because they had received information the EC was about to declare the results.

Security officers at post, according to reports, intervened. JoyNews reporter Nana Yaw Gyimah reports that the EC office which is about 200 metres away from the coalition centre was later engulfed by fire.

The incident has been brought under control as the fire service has succeeded in dousing the flame.

Fomena Constituency has been in the spotlight after the incumbent Member of Parliament Andrews Asiamah who was on the ticket of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) decided to contest as an independent candidate.
