JUST IN: Imo REC orders arrest of LG collation officer who ‘manipulated results’

JUST IN: Imo REC orders arrest of LG collation officer who ‘manipulated results’

The Resident Electoral Commissioner, Francis Ezeonu, in Imo State has handed over two returning officers to security agents over the manipulation of results in Ideato North Local Government Area.

The returning officer, Ezirim Kelechi, confirmed to the REC that after issuing duplicates of the results to party agents, he altered the original copy, injecting more than 1,000 votes to the results.

This was discovered after the results he read out at the collation centre was disputed by party agents and the REC compared the results.

The REC subsequently handed the matter over to security operatives who arrested them.

He said, “Ladies and Gentlemen, firstly, the results of the ward, Obitti/Mgbishi, stands cancelled because after the co had given the results to the agents.”

“I have been advised to note that the action constitutes electoral malpractice. I hereby hand over the case to the security agents to handle.”
