Rerun Election: INEC officials suspend elections in two local government areas

The Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC has currently suspended the re-run legislative elections in two more local government areas – Etche and Asari-Toru.

INEC had suspended election in six local government areas including; Andoni, Gokana, Khana, Eleme, Tai and Bonny.

The latest suspension is contained in a statement signed by the Resident Electoral Commissioner in the state, Aniedi Ikoiwak.

Ikowak revealed that the elections were suspended in the eight Local government areas because of wide spread violence and other disturbing activities that stopped election from been conducted properly.

He said the suspended elections were necessitated by the need to forestall breakdown of law and order in the event of further aggravation of crisis.

INEC however said it needed to put all stakeholders on notice that the commission is still investigating the situation in the remaining fifteen local government areas to ensure there are no loop holes.
