The Independent National Electoral Commission Electoral (INEC) officials at Umunankwo/ Mputu ward in Ogbaru LGA, Anambra State were almost lynched by enraged members of the community when they arrived late to the polling unit yesterday.
According to Leadership, the electoral officials arrived the center at about 12:30pm without result sheets for two polling units.
One of the INEC officials, Mr. Ignatius Onyejekwe, while narrating their ordeal said they escaped the wrath of the voters due to sheer luck.
He stated that the voters were angry because they could not find voting materials for two polling units there and the presiding officials.
As at 3:30pm, INEC officials hadn’t arrived Obeagwe, Akili-Ogidi and Ogwuikpele communities in Ogbaru riverine area because of the difficult terrain owing to rain fall that occurred the previous night. The electoral officials were said to have refused entering a flying boat to access the three communities.
