In the commotion, the thugs smashed the car of our correspondent, destroying the rear windscreen. The reporter, in company with Channels Television’s cameraman and a colleague from another media organisation, managed to escape.

The announcement of results for the Fufore Local Government Area (LGA) was deferred to 12 pm, following disagreements over the results.
