Protest rocks INEC office in Bayelsa over 'manipulation of results'

Protest rocks INEC office in Bayelsa over 'manipulation of r

There is a massive ongoing protest at the office of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) over concocted election results from Nembe Bassambiri.

Protesters gathered at the office of INEC to protest an alleged move by the top leadership of INEC to distort the votes in the Saturday election.

As early as 9 am, the angry protesters blocked the busy Swali Road location of INEC to prevent the commission from accepting the results from Nembe Bassambiri which they said were concocted.

The Bayelsa State Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice, Dambo Biriyai, (SAN), told journalists during the protest that the election did not take place in Nembe Bassambiri.

He called on INEC REC in the state, Obo Effanga, and South-South Commissioner for INEC May Agbamuche-Mbu to do what is right by rejecting the alleged fake results.

He stressed that PDP members who visited their country home of Bassambiri were prevented entry by the combined team of SWAT police and APC thugs.

He stated further that the APC only wrote outrageous results that were not products of any voting. 

“If what we are here for is allowed to go on, it would be a massive rape of democracy. We are here because we were disenfranchised in Nembe Bassambiri. And no voting took place there.

“Precisely on the 10th of Nov, in order to vote for our candidate, about 60 buses left Yenagoa, to Nembe Bassambiri with escort. When we got there, the SWAT team was blocking the entrance with other APC youths."
