The Abia State chapter of the All Progressives Grand Alliance has alleged that Police arrested one Gaius with already prepared result sheets showing that the state’s chapter of the Peoples Democratic Party won in the now postponed Saturday February 16 elections.
The state chairman of APGA, Rev. Augustine Ehiemere, made the allegation in a statement on Sunday in Umuahia, Abia State capital, at the governorship campaign office of Dr. Alex Otti.
Ehiemere, whose address was read by the Deputy Chairman of the Party, Chima Onyekwere, said the party in the state “received the polls postponement with shock and great disappointment.”
While recounting the losses experienced as a result of the postponement, he also disclosed that APGA’s attention had been drawn to an alleged plan by the state PDP to rig the election.
According to him, part of the plans was busted on Friday night when Police arrested a man who identified himself as Gauis somewhere in Umuahia for being in “possession of INEC’s sensitive documents and already completed result sheets that gave PDP victory ahead of the now postponed presidential and National Assembly elections.”
