INEC Headquarters In Rivers state Bombed

The Headquarters of the In­dependent National Elec­toral Commission (INEC), in Bedere, Gokhana Local Gov­ernment Area of Rivers State, was yesterday rocked by bomb explo­sion.

Though the State Police Com­mand has confirmed the incident, there was no report of casualties.

Meanwhile, the People’s Dem­ocratic Party (PDP), alleged the arrest of some of its supporters at various polling units, and the use of security agents to rig the elec­tions in favour of the main oppo­sition All Progressives Congress (APC).

Our correspondent gathered that there was no election in ward 4, unit 3, Ogo/Bolo LGA follow­ing the hijack of election materi­als by suspected thugs.

There were also reports of protests by potential voters at var­ious polling units in Ahoda West LGA following alleged manipula­tion of the voting process by sup­porters of the APC.

Similar protests were recorded in Tai LGA where supporters of the PDP called for the postpone­ment of the polls following al­leged rigging of the elections by agents of APC.

In Bonny and Eleme LGAs, there were reports of malfunc­tioning of card reader machines.

There were equally reports of sporadic gun shots in Abonema and Akuku Toru Local Govern­ment Areas of the state, to scare aware potential voters.
