INEC, Police, Army Culpable In Rivers Elections Violence — Report by zik4ever: 10:34am On Dec 12, 2016
The Rivers State legislative rerun elections held on Saturday were marred by irregularities, large scale violence, professional misconducts and open bias by security operatives and electoral personnel, a report released by an observer group, says.

The report, released by CLEEN Foundation, a civil society organization, on Sunday, fingered the Police, Army, SSS in multiple cases of violence and malpractices that characterised the exercise.

“The way and manner in which the election was conducted is a validation of the outcomes of the Security Threat Assessment report, and justifies the concerns of various stakeholders that the outcome of the election will not reflect the will of the people,” CLEEN said.

“There were serious cases of electoral violence orchestrated by the Police, Army and DSS in Ward 3 Bodo community in Gokana and Khana Local Government Area. This led to the shooting to death of Mr. Mbari John MeeBari.
“At Ward 12, Unit 5, Abonnema, Akuku Toru, Police shot sporadically to scarce away voters. At Sara 1, Sara 2 and Kalakama (Ward 12), Okirika LGA electoral materials were hijacked by the Army and officers of SARS at gunpoint, the report noted.

The group blamed the killing of a police officer, Alkali Mohammed, a deputy superintendent of police, and his orderly, on “unwarranted use of force and shooting”. Mr. Mohammed was beheaded in an ambush at Omoku, Ogba/Ndoni/Egbema LGA.

CLEEN lamented failure of the military and other security agencies to maintain neutrality towards the political parties.

“INEC, Police, Army and DSS provided overt and covert support for one of the political parties during the poll at Isiokpo INEC Collation Center,Ikwerre LGA, Ngo in Andoni LGA, Bonny LGA and Ahoada, INEC Staff and security agencies especially the army and police were observed openly aiding a political party.”
But both police and army insisted they did not favour any party. However residents many other and observer groups also accuse them of bias.

CLEEN said it observed late arrival of materials in some places, including “Ward 8, unit 14, Ubima, Ikwerre LGA; Ward 16, Nyokhana, Khana LGA, Ward 9, unit 3, Ogu Bolo LGA.

The group asked President Muhammadu Buhari, the Inspector General of Police and INEC to launch investigations into the conduct of military personnel and police officers deployed for the Rivers polls, and “bring those found guilty of professional misconduct to book.”

More than 24 hours after voting ended, results are yet to be declared in several constituencies amid claims of efforts by political actors to manipulate the outcomes.

Goodbye to democracy in Nigeria!

I foresee an impeding anarchy, civil disobedience and bloodletting in future elections in Nigeria; what Buhary did in 2011 will be a child play.

Good luck to Nigeria and Nigerians; some brainwashed elements among you asked for the CHAIN-JI.

That's the story of election in Nigeria.

When they loose, they accuse the authority of complicity, but when they win, it is the result of their hardwork.

Second base jare.

On a second note, I don't expect those wailing buffoons to believe this story since they always label Premiumtimes as APc media house. It must be another lie and propaganda. grin grin grin

The labour of our leaders past shall never be in vain.

Yaradua/Jonathan met a bad electoral system and they reformed it.

Jonathan conducted a free and fair election. PDP lost some states under him.

He made sure nobody lost his life for his ambition.

Now this mumu is giving us a negative growth in all sectors. I am afraid of 2019 already.

... and the HOPE is gone. RIP! #EMUKAYABIOLA, MAY YOUR SOUL CONTINUE TO REST IN PERFECT PEACE!
The first time I heard that a Policeman (DSP for that matter) with his Orderly was beheaded, what came to my mind was that 'The HOPE is lost'. Who then can secure Citizens' lives? If Security Personnel can be beheaded in just a RERUN of an election in only one state of the country. Lets now assume the whole country is doing RERUN through the 36 states at the same time. In this one state, thousands of Police men and Army were deployed for the purpose of ensuring security during the electioneering period but this still happened to one of their senior officers. UHhn, and this happened only because they did not focus on their supposed primary assignment but rather on their Principals' vested interest. To my assessment, the HOPE is lost!

Some misfit and children of anger will keep on celebrating this show of shame by the military personnels.They will keep on shouting how wike did similar thing.
The question they didn't ask if wike was using the military,the police and DSS to snatched ballot boxes.
If similar thing happened in last election.I believe APC will quickly ask Buratai et all to constitute a military panel to investigate this and subsequently will punished every perpetrators find culpable.

One message for Buhari, you will never remain on that throne forever.The days of reckoning will call.You will definetely pay for all the atrocities, pains and hardship you created for people of Rivers state and Nigerians at large.
