Meanwhile, hoodlums disrupted the exercise in some communities as election materials meant for over 57 polling units were allegedly snatched.

Oba 1 and 2 wards, RAs, Idemili South Local Government Area were affected by the activities of the hoodlums.

The Anambra State Resident Electoral Commissioner, REC, Nwachukwu Orji confirmed the development on Channels Television Saturday evening.


According to him, “Part of the report we got regarding our deployment in different polling units — we were not able to finish deployment in some polling units because of several reasons. One of the reasons is, we were prevented by community members in some local government areas from deploying.

“So, we have some resistance in these places. While election materials were snatched and destroyed in some other places. Example is Oba 1 & 2 wards, RAs, Idemili South LGA where materials up to 57 polling units were snatched.”
