Protesters storm Abuja over Rivers election rerun
Scores of protesters on Tuesday, November 8, stormed the headquarters of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in Abuja, over the alleged production of fake election re-run results in Rivers state.
Premium Times reports that the protesters alleged that a former acting INEC chairperson, Amina Zakari, is conniving with some politicians of Nigeria’s ruling party to print fake result sheets. No evidence was produced to buttress the allegations.
