The governorship candidate of the Labour Party (LP) in Imo State, Athan Achonu, on Saturday, alleged that thugs beat up his party’s agent during the election.
Achonu charged the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to cancel the votes in polling units marred by violence.
The governorship candidate stated this in Umunumo hamlet in the Ehime Mbano Local Government Area of Imo State.
When asked if the electoral body should cancel votes in polling units marred by violence, Achonu said, “Of course where this thing is happening, they must cancel it.
“There is no other alternative than to cancel it so that every person will come there and watch it conducted.
“They beat up so many of our agents. We are sad, we are going to upload some of their pictures. This is crazy, this is what our democracy has come to.
“But we are resisting. Can’t you see the people here? They will not allow it. I hope it is the same thing going on everywhere so that we can have proper democracy and bring in good governance.”
