A man with claims of being an electoral officer at Dunukofia Local Government Area of Anambra State was nabbed by security agencies at the Secretariat of the Independent National Electoral Commission in Awka shortly before the announcement of election results.

His arrest created a bit of confusion and panic as security men went after him shouting: “Bring that result”.

A security man who spoke to News Express said: “The man claimed he worked at Dunukofia as Electoral Officer but another man is here as EO of the same place.”

He added: “We are sorting things out to make sure somebody doesn’t claim what he is not.”

The man, believed to be in the age bracket of 25 – 30 years, was carrying with him a big bag, apparently containing some election results.

He was subsequently taken to a corner of the Secretariat for interrogation.
