He identified that there have been illegal cancellations of outcomes significantly from Urhonigbe South and North in Orhiomwon, whereas outcomes had been falsified from many polling models in Ofunama in Ovia South West, and in components of Ovia North East, Owan West, Oredo, Egor, Ikpoba-Okha, Esan North East, Esan West, Esan South East, and Uhunmwode Local Government Areas.

“Sadly, two individuals had been killed through the election, whereas gun-wielding thugs took over collation centres in lots of places with out the intervention of law-enforcement brokers.

“There have been additionally a number of instances of malfunctioning card readers, which disenfranchised duly registered voters, along with many instances of unregistered voters voting with pre-purchased voters’ playing cards not collected by their precise house owners,” Ize Iyamu stated in an announcement made out there to POLITICS360 on Monday.

He famous that these are all lawful and integral components of the electoral course of in any democracy, calling on everybody to respect and acknowledge as real democrats.
