Protests Trail Edo Governorship Election Result Announcement

The protesters alleged that the results
have been altered by the electoral
commission.

Security officials have formed a
barricade outside the INEC office to stall
any breakdown of law and order.
Some of the protesters told Channels
Television that what was being
announced inside the hall is not a
reflection of what transpired at the
polling units.
INEC announced results of nine out of
18 Local Government Areas with the All
Progressives Congress candidate
winning in five while the candidate of
the Peoples Democratic Party has
scooped the remaining four Local
Government Areas.
The APC won in Owan West, Egor,
Igueben, Uhunwomnde and Oredo local
government areas, while the PDP polled
more votes in Esan West, Orhiomwon,
Esan South-East and Esan North-East
local government areas.
The police have dispersed the crowd
with tear gas and gun shots.
