Fake Police and Fake Military Officers took over Ideato South.

The March 9th governorship and state house of Assembly elections in Ideato South, the local government of the incumbent governor, Rochas Okorocha were marred by irregularities.

In a bid to rig the election in favor of his son-inlaw, Uche Nwosu, the governorship candidate of Action Alliance, AA and Johnson Duru, Pa Jay, the Imo State House of Assembly candidate for Ideato South, of Action Alliance, AA as governor of Imo State and Ideato South legislator. Rochas and his AA candidates imported thugs to impersonate police officers and military personnel, these thugs were fully armed with uniforms of the Nigeria Police force and of the Nigeria Army.

These fake Police officers and soldiers fully armed with AK47 were moving round Ideato South, moving from polling Unit to polling Unit, harassing and intimidating voters, causing tension, shooting sporadically to disrupt elections in polling Units where the PDP candidate, Comrade Dike Stanley, Ikukuoma is leading with wide margin, snatching of ballot boxes and thumbprinting in the Bush, aiding in the rigging of the election in favour of Action Alliance AA.

We call on INEC to cancel the election of Ideato South due to the fact that the activities of these fake Police and military men made the people run for their dear lives, thereby disenfranchising the people.

We urge the appropriate authorities to reschedule the election of Ideato South to a day were necessary security measures would be taken for a free and fair election.
