INEC has suspended announcement of results in Imo state after it ended in a fight at the Imo state Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC along Portharcourt road in Owerri, Imo state.
Drama started by 5.30am on Monday, when the results from Ideato South Local Government Area was about to be announced.
Uche Onyegucha, the PDP Imo state party agent raised an objection that the resyults should not be announced. His reasons was that:
“All the electoral officers were taken to a particular place to write the results. Also that the party agents were driven away by the agents of the government and the results were written in a favour of one candidate.”
But party agents of the Democratic Alternative DA, Paschal Onwukaike, challenged him on the reason for which the results should be cancelled.
At a point both agents were forced to engage in a loud argument which resulted to fighting and touching the INEC materials.
Onyegucha and Onwukaike, including Steve Asinobi have all been arrested by security operatives at the INEC office.
