Reports from the field in the court-ordered re-run election for the Akwa Ibom North West Senatorial District, taking place only in Essien Udim Local Government Area, today, has it that the Minister of Niger Delta Affairs, Godswill Akpabio, has again unleashed violence in the area.
Aided by his Cousin, the Superintendent of Police, Idorenyin Akpabio, armed thugs wielding guns and other dangerous weapons, allegedly stormed Unit 5, Ward 11, and carted away voting materials, and abducted the INEC Officials at the unit.
“The entire materials for Akpautong Ward and Ukana Ward were hijacked by Supol Idorenyin Akpabio, and presently at the private residence of Barr Ibanga Akpabio, in Ukana.
“It was a terrifying experience”, said an eyewitness who released that he ran fast into the bush for his dear life.
“They shot indiscriminately into the air and seized all the materials. The INEC Officials were manhandled and abducted. As I speak, I do not know where they are. It is very sad why Akpabio will do this to his people and the innocent INEC Officials, who are only here to do their job.”
