VIDEO: Chaos In Imo As Party Agents Disrupt Collation Process


The collation process for the governorship election results in Imo State was disrupted on Monday.

This followed a chaos started by some political party agents at the collation centre of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in Owerri, the state capital.

The incident occurred as a result of a heated argument on the acceptance of one of the results from Ideato Local Government Area of the state.
