Two persons protesting irregularities during Gubernatorial elections killed
Two persons have been reportedly killed by unknown gunmen at Bori, the headquarters of Khana Local Government Area of Rivers State.
Reports say that the persons died through a stray bullet, which hit them, while the gunmen were shooting sporadically in the area.
It was reported that many residents of the area trooped to protest the fatality and alleged irregularities during the election process in the area.
The protesters were said to have accused a certain political party of trying to subvert the election process, through the help of police operatives.
The protesting voters said materials were transferred to homes of top politicians, while materials meant for Ikwerre council, home of the former Transportation Minister, Chibuike Amaechi, were sent to them.
A voter in the area, Jeremiah Precious, narrated that the people were asking that the material meant for the Khana Local Government be brought out before police invaded.
He said that some boys in the area challenged the police personnel, causing panic and that the police shot two people.
Precious said: “Today, we came out to vote and we noticed that the materials they brought to us are fake. They are from Ikwerre.
“Because of this we matched out to protest. The real materials have been sent to the homes of PDP leaders and they are there writing results.
“While we are protesting, police came and started shooting at us.”
