We don’t know if army rigged elections – INEC

The Independent National Electoral Commission says it does not know if soldiers rigged elections in the River State governorship poll which was marred by violence.

The INEC National Commissioner for Information and Voter Education, Festus Okoye, explained that after the Rivers State elections were suspended, INEC went on a fact finding mission to the state and based on some discoveries, the commission would be holding a meeting with the heads of security agencies.

He added, they made a determination that the army got involved in the electoral process but whether their involvement in the process was to rig the elections, and that he is2 not in a position to make a determination on that

The INEC boss said there would be a meeting with all stakeholders including traditional and religious leaders with a view to ensuring that the electoral process in Rivers State will be peaceful.
