The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in Kaduna State has postponed collation of results following destruction of election materials in Kudan local government area by thugs.

Persecondnews reports that INEC had already collated results in 22 of the 23 council area in the state.

So far, Mr Uba Sani of the All Progressives Congress was leading PDP’s Isa Ashiru with over 13,000 votes.

The Administrative Secretary of INEC, Mr Awal Mahammad Mashi, disclosed that there was an invasion by thugs at the collation centre, saying “everything to do with the election was destroyed.”

“We have all the results in the INEC server, we will download them in the presence of everybody.

“INEC has always been transparent, we are going to download everything, we are going to give the same results that was torn,” he said.

In a swift move to prevent a breakdown of law and order, the Kaduna State Government has prohibited any form of protest and appealed to citizens to promptly report activities that pose or may disrupt public peace.

The Commissioner for Internal Security, Mr Samuel Aruwan, said: “Security agencies are conducting diligent investigations into these reports. Individuals and groups found to be behind such activities will be vigorously prosecuted.

“It is important to reiterate that street protests remain strictly prohibited to prevent any possible breakdown of law and order.

“Government appeals to citizens to volunteer information on any activity which may pose a threat to public peace, law and order via these help lines: 09034000060 08170189999.”
