TOWN CRIER has gathered that election materials were allegedly snatched in Rivers State. Speaking to TOWN CRIER, a Youth Corp member said the election materials were for four wards and thirty three polling units.
“It happened early this morning, at about 3am. They were suppose to transport the materials from the Local Government Council to our RAC centers which is at Ogbogbo but they claim they were brainwashed and the materials were snatched. That is the report from the INEC officials who came to address us this morning.” the corper said.
When we asked about the current situation at the local government, he added:
“We are still in the local government councils, no elections are going on that particular wards. After corpers slept under the cold weather with mosquitoes. We have left the RAC. We left in fears because the community is threatening to beat us up. The tension everywhere is high. The community is not happy with INEC.”
As at the time of filling this report, efforts to get the reaction of INEC proved abortive, as its officials decline speaking.
