The returning officer of the Idemili South Local Government Area, Gabriel Othong, says that 41 result sheets of the 42 result sheets for 89 polling units were carted away.

Mr Othong, who is from the University of Calabar in Cross River, made the disclosure while submitting results for the area.

He alleged that the result sheets of the affected areas were carted away by the Supervising Polling Officer (SPO) posted to the area.

According to him, there was no election in Oba Ward 1, Oba Ward 11 and Akukwu Ward all in Idemili South Local Government Area of Anambra.

“One of the SPOs carted 41 out of the 42 result sheets meant for the 89 polling units in the affected wards.

“Over 40, 000 voters were not able to vote in the affected areas due to the development,” he stated.

The returning officer said some of the polling units did not get the deployment of electoral officials due to cases of gunshots.

The agent of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Ebere Obiakor, said there was an election in those places but the results were not collated.

But the collation agent of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), Alex Obiogbolu, countered the position of the APC agent, saying there was no election in any of the affected places.

Victor Umeh of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) corroborated what Mr Obiogbolu said, insisting there was no election in those areas.

Meanwhile, the result for the top three parties released for Idemili South was APC – 1,036, APGA – 2,312 and PDP – 2,016.

Idemili South Local Government Area has a total of 112, 652 out of which only 6, 622 voters were accredited.
