Duoye Diri, the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP), has accused the Nigerian Army of tampering with the results of the election held in Ogbia local government.
“We have credible information that the NigerianArmy is conniving with our opponents to change results. This was done yesterday in a few areas,” PDP candidate Duoye Diri claimed in a chat with journalists some minutes ago”
Speaking to journalists in a press conference on Sunday, November 17, Diri claimed that a commanding officer of the army used his men to chase PDP agents and its stakeholders from the local government so that the results can be manipulated.
Diri, therefore, called for the cancellation of results in those areas.
He also called for the cancellation of results in areas where election materials were hijacked.
He said: “We have credible information that the Nigerian Army is conniving with our opponents to change results. This was done yesterday in a few areas.
“Not satisfied, today, the Nigerian Army is in Ogbia, chasing away all PDP agents, stakeholders and arresting others.
“This is against the laws of our land. This is anathema. By the provisions of the constitution and electoral laws, the Nigerian Army should not be part of the process of elections.
