NYSC Member Working for INEC in Rivers Election Killed

INEC’s Resident Electoral Commissioner in Rivers State, Mr Aniedi Ikoiwak, has confirmed that the electoral officer for Ikwerre who was earlier declared missing during the Rivers rerun election has been found alive.

Mr Osifo Osaze is reported to have been attacked by gunmen who opened fire on his vehicle but he managed to escape his assailants into the bush.

The REC told Channels that Mr Osaze was found with bullet wounds and has been taken to hospital.
Sadly, a Youth Corps member working as ad hoc INEC official was killed during violence at a polling unit in Ahoada West area.

Mr Ikoiwak said that further announcements on the polls will be made in due course.

INEC had suspended further activities in the Rivers State rerun elections following the violent incidents that trailed the conduct of the polls.

The case of Rivers State is really becoming something else, with guns in the hands of youths who use it anyhow for their political godfathers and in open show of force against innocent citizens.
