Tension in Bayelsa INEC over arrest of REC, others

There was palpable fear at the office of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), Yenagoa, Bayelsa State, following reports the Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC) Monday Tom Udoh and two other officials were arrested for electoral fraud by a special police squad.

Fact-finding by the Nation showed that the commission’s complex located along Swali Market Road was unusually quiet with employees wearing long faces and undertaking skeletal assignments.

Though the official vehicle of the REC was not parked at its usual place, it was gathered that Udoh was in his office.

All efforts to gain entrance to his office to get his side of the report proved abortive as the personal secretary of the REC and his police orderly blocked all access to Udoh, adopting various delay tactics.
