Days after the destruction and burning of the facilities, Governor Okezie Ikpeazu visited the affected areas and promised to help rebuild the structures.
Some of the affected structures include Aba South Local Government Secretariat, Aba High Court, Abia State Fire Service, Aba, Abia State Board of Internal Revenue Service, Aba Zonal Office of the Ministry of Agriculture, Aba South Primary Health Care Department, etc.
Sadly, one year on, most of the affected government owned buildings in the city remain the same, if not in worst conditions.
This is how Aba Town Hall, in Aba South Local Government Area Council secretariat looked before the attack.
The above photos are the current state of Aba Town Hall, one year after the destruction and burning of parts of the building.
The situation at the facility is worse because most staff members of the Local Government Council no longer have offices where they can carry out their daily duties and responsibilities.
If one visited the council on a week day, one would find staff either loitering or standing at corners in the premises due to the inability of the management to provide offices and chairs for the workers.
It is no different at the Aba Area Office of the Abia State Board of Internal Revenue Service office, which is a few minutes walk across the Local Government Council secretariat.
Current look of the Abia State Board of Internal Revenue Service, Aba office, one year after properties in the office were looted and the building razed.
Staff of the office have been operating since the end of 2020, albeit without an office.
A few minutes drive along the same road houses the Aba Station of the Abia State Fire Service. The office building, including a fire-fighting truck waa torched.
Governor Ikpeazu visited the Fire Service office in Aba.
Members of staff of the agency have since returned to work in the same offices without any form of reconstruction done in the building.
