BREAKING: Too Much Violence, As INEC Suspends Elections In Rivers State, Releases Quick Statement

The Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, has suspended electoral processes in Rivers State, as a result of violence.

The Commission announced this in a statement issued on Sunday afternoon.

Read the attached statement below:

Earlier, there was a clash between Soldiers and Policemen, at the main gate of the Headquarters of the Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, in Port Harcourt, the Rivers State capital, on Sunday.

Though, the reason for the disagreement was not clear, because most Journalists were barred from entering the place by the Soldiers, it was gathered that the Soldiers wanted to take over the manning of the gate, a decision that was said to have been resisted by the Police.

Many persons, including Journalists, who were close to the INEC Office gate left immediately, to avoid choking, as a result of the teargas that was shot into the air by the Police at a point.

However, as at 1.55pm, collation of election results had not begun at the Collation Centre, inside the INEC Office.

It was learnt that INEC had insisted that collation would not commence, with the heavy presence of Soldiers within its premises.

Currently, all four lanes of the Port Harcourt-Aba Expressway have been blocked, from the GRA Junction to Waterlines, near the INEC Office.
