WITHIN NIGERIA gathered that the office which is situated within the popular Umuahia Timber Market, was burnt down after the Bakassi boys were accused of killing a trader during a squabble with the state Board of Internal Revenue Service (ABIRS) which sealed shops over nonpayment of N18,000 fee on same day.
