The Rivers state government has raised alarm over the interference of the army into Election proceedings at Emohua area of the state. In a statement signed by Simon Nwakaudu, Gov. Wike’s assistant on new media, army officers stopped the announcement of results on noticing that PDP has won the area.
The statement, which appears hastily written, read;
Nigerian army stop announcement of emohua results already collated
About to forcefully concoct results
