Written by Oluseyi Adefowora

The Returning Officer, Christian Ogbuagbu, in Imo State has handed over two collation officers to security agents over the manipulation of results in Ohaji/Egbema Local Government Area.

The collation officer, Ehirim Kelechi, confirmed to the RO 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 RO compared the results.
