INEC SAYS ITS OFFICIALS FACED A LOT AND SOME WHERE RAPED

Nigeria’s electoral commission (Inec) has said that its officials were subjected to “threats, harassment, intimidation, assault, abduction and even rape” during last week’s presidential election.

Inec did say things were “generally peaceful”, but said it was concerned about the violence which led to some fatalities and in some cases stopped the vote taking place.

It was also critical of the behaviour of some security personnel saying: “The conduct of certain members of the security agencies in some sites is a matter of serious concern to the commission.”

A rerun of presidential vote will be done in some cancelled/didnt hold polling units
