Operatives of the Economic and Financial Crimes Commission (EFCC) on Sunday stormed the office of the Independent National Electoral Commission’s office located behind the headquarters of the Oshimili south local government area in Asaba, the Delta state capital.
The operatives who came in company of persons who were dressed in the attire of domestic observers in the just concluded presidential and national assembly elections, only demanded for the Delta state headquarters of INEC, having been given the direction by some media people present, they entered their bus and zoomed off.
In less than two hours after leaving the office for the state INEC headquarters, the officials returned to the local government INEC office, though their mission is yet to be verified by this medium.
As at the time of the visit and when Emeraldng.com filed the report, security operatives and journalists were at the local government INEC office waiting for the result of the elections.
Emeraldng.com reports that police men on ground at the local government INEC office were displeased on seeing the EFCC officials at the local council result collation centre.
Some of the police officers went livid seeing the EFCC officials, saying: “What are they looking for here? Are they here to investigate corruption? Let them go and investigate who owns Keystone Bank not election result collation centre.
” What does EFCC have to do with election? We have been here five days now and they are coming here, to do what?”
However, Emeraldng.com learnt that their movement may be in search of some politicians who have issues to answer at the EFCC headquarters in Abuja.
Meanwhile, as at the time of filing this report, results were still being expected from some polling units and wards in the Oshimili south local government area.
Inside the collation centre were bags of used ballot papers and other materials being put together by the local government INEC officials.
