Umana explained that reports from across the state by the party’s agents also indicated widespread defranchise of voters by attempts by the P D P thugs to hijack materials.

He further stated that security personnel intercepted election materials including result sheets in the House of a PDP chieftain in Nsit Ubium local council and were handed back to INEC officials but that the people refused to vote since the ballot papers were incomplete,
