The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has declared the result of Imo North Senatorial District rerun election inconclusive.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the poll was conducted on Saturday (July 23).

Also declared inconclusive were the results of Oru East and Isiala Mbano State Constituencies following reported cases of shot out which characterised the exercise in some communities in the two affected areas.

The shootings were reported at Okata and Amiri in Oru East, while skirmishes and snatching of ballot boxes characterised the election in some communities in Isiala Mbano area.

Prof. Arinze Agbogu, the INEC Returning Officer for Imo North Senatorial District who announced the result on Sunday, however, said that Mr Ben Uwajumogu, APC’s senatorial candidate, polled 48,921.

Agbogu also announced that Athan Achonu of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) scored 40,142 votes to emerge second in the already declared result.

He explained that results of several polling units in Isiala Mbano area were characterised by irregularities leading to cancellation of the results.

Agbogu explained that the exercise was cancelled in 15 polling units with a total of 13,000 registered voters.

According to him, the difference between the candidate with the highest score and the second stood at 8,777 votes.

Still on the senatorial rerun election, retired Air Marshal Isaac Alfa of PDP has emerged winner in Kogi East.

The Returning Officer, Professor Lucky Ovwasa, made the announcement on Sunday in Kogi State, north-central Nigeria.

He said that Air Marshal Alfa gathered a total vote of 56,572 ahead of his opponent from the Labour Party who scored 111,908 votes.

The Deputy Inspector General of Police, DIG Folusho Adebanjo, had described the rerun election as very peaceful and violence free.

He also commended the effort of electorate for the peaceful conduct of the rerun election.

The election was characterised by low turnout of electorate in all polling units of the eight local government areas of Kogi State.
