LEADERSHIP Sunday has it that the poll officials arrived the centre at about 12:30pm without result sheets for two polling units. One of the officials for the centre, Mr. Ignatius Onyejekwe, stated that he escaped the wrath of the voters along with other ad hoc staff by the whiskers.

Narrating his severe experience, the electoral officer, he stated that the voters were angry because they could not find voting materials for two polling units there and the presiding officials.

As at 3:30pm, INEC officials hadn’t arrived Obeagwe, Akili-Ogidi and Ogwuikpele communities in Ogbaru riverine area because of the difficult terrain owing to rain fall that occurred the previous night. The electoral officials were said to have refused entering a flying boat to access the three communities.
