SARS Intimidating Rivers Collation Officers - PDP Raises Alarm

The Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Rivers State has alleged that security operatives attached to the Special Anti-Robbery Squad (SARS) were trying to intimidate electoral officers recalled to conclude the collation of results of the governorship election of March 9.

The PDP said SARS men, on the orders ACP Akin Fakorede, had invited INEC officers, returning officers and ad hoc staff participating in the collation to threaten and intimidate them.


The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) had ordered the resumption collation of the results after it suspended electoral processes in the state following widespread violence. Details of the activities to conclude the process are to be released today by the electoral umpire.

Also reacting, the Senator representing Rivers South-East District, Magnus Abe, said no one can handpick a governor for Rivers State. According to Abe, “the right to do so rests squarely on the shoulders of Rivers people to freely choose who will lead them.”
