A combination of the Army and police personnel have quelled a clash between the supporters of the All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA) and the People’s Democratic Party (PDP) in Umuahia, the Abia State capital.

Hundreds of supporters of both parties stormed the vicinity of the head office of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in anticipation of the outcome of the final results and announcement of the winner of the governorship election.

Reports say the clash, which was believed to have been caused by arguments from both camps, was contained by security agencies deployed to the INEC office.

Two people sustained gunshot injuries, while 4 cars were damaged in the process.

Despite the early intervention, there are fears of possible violence in the aftermath of the announcement of the final outcome of the election.
