Some unknown Gunmen has set a Federal High Court in Ebonyi State ablaze.
According to eyewitness account, the attack was carried out by the hoodlums using petrol bombs.
The fire which began in the early hours affected the library and the security post of the court building.
However, fire fighters were said to have later mobilized to the scene to put out the fire before it could cause more damage.
No casualty was recorded in the attack which destroyed court records in the library.
The police spokesperson in the state, Loveth Odah, who confirmed the incident, said the attackers came in their large numbers to carry out the attack.
Most states in the South-east and South-south, have been grappling with severe security challenges, including the spate of attacks on security agencies.
The motive for attack on the Federal High Court, just like the attacks on security officials, is possibly to weaken state institutions that are in-charge of law and order, so as to create fear and confusion.
