Eye witnesses said personnel of the Fire Service with assistance from men of the Nigerian Police Force helped extinguish the fire at the PDP Secretariat.
Addressing newsmen, PDP Chairman, General Audu Kwaskebe (Rtd), accused Youth Leader of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state, Kawu Lero, of spearheading the burning of the secretariat.
He said they had written a petition to the state police command for the appropriate action.
Meanwhile, State PRO of the APC, Mr Moses Kyari, alleged that it was PDP members that set their office on fire, “due internal crisis over control of the party structure.”
He said a structure bearing posters of Governor Muhammadu Inuwa Yahaya were also touched by the vandals.
