The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has suspended the announcement of results for the Saturday’s elections in Imo State after a fight broke out at their office along Portharcourt road in Owerri, the state capital.
It was gathered that troubles started by 5:30 am when the results from Ideato South local government area was about to be announced.
Uche Onyegucha, the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) agent for the state, said the results should not be announced as according to him “all the electoral officers were taken to a particular place to write the results.
“Also, the party agents were driven away by the agents of the government and the results were written in favour of one candidate.
Reacting, the party agents for the Democratic Alternative (DA), Paschal Onwukaike, countered him (Onyegucha).
This led to a loud argument between the two, resulting in fighting and torching INEC materials.
However, security operatives at the INEC office have already arrested the duo.
