Akwa Ibom Election Fraud: SSS Arrests Ex-NYSC DG Edet Akpan, 10 Corpers & Soldier

10 NYSC corper working for INEC in Akwa Ibom state were arrested this afternoon for committing electoral fraud.

Though the governorship and state house of Assembly elections that took place nationwide Saturday was generally peaceful in Akwa Ibom State, 10 corps members and a soldier were reportedly arrested at the home of a retired General and former NYSC Director, Gen. Edet Akpan, by men of the Department of Security Service for electoral offences.

The state Resident Electoral Commissioner, Barr Austin Okojie gave this report while taking a break from the election to brief the press in Uyo, the state capital.
Okojie who reacted to general complains about late arrival of result sheets and compromise by some INEC officials said INEC received sensitive materials on Tuesday, despatched to local government areas on

Thursday for early dispatch to polling units.
He regretted that the issue of late arrival of result sheets is never the policy of INEC, as the commission has no reason to withhold any sensitive material.

“The issue of late arrival of result sheet should not even arise because we issue all the sensitive materials at once and have trained and warned our electoral officers against dispatching any electoral material to politicians.”

Okojie who reported cases of violence in Uyo, Ibesikpo, Nsit Ubium and Mkpat Enin, Nsit Ibom and Etinan local government areas said these are basically security issues and commended security agencies for being alive to their responsibilities.

He further reported prompt replacement of card readers in areas where a few were reported to have malfunctioned.

    My dad, Gen Edet Akpan is being illegally detained by Governor Akpabio

    My dad, Maj. Gen. Edet Akpan (rtd) had gone out to vote in his polling unit, when he got back he met a mammoth crowd in his compound. The Corpers who were amongst the crowd explained to him that they had nowhere else to run to with the ballot materials and that Godswill Akpabio’s thugs were on a rampage hijacking ballot boxes in all the local governments and carting them away to Akpabio in Government house, so they needed to run away with the ones in their possession for safe keeping and that they felt my father’s compound was the safest place to bring them too till the thugs go away.

    On hearing this my dad started making frantic efforts to reach Inec Head office in Uyo to alert them on what’s happening in his village in Nsit Atai! However before contact could be established SSS, police and the army stormed my father’s compound and demanded to have access into the property! The youths immediately wanted to launch a protest but my dad hastily halted them saying he doesn’t want further disruptions to the electoral process. He asked his soldiers who are detailed to him to open up the gate and allow them in. So SSS drove into the compound in their armored vehicles while shooting their machine guns into the air!

    This is a false allegation. AKpabio feels intimidation is the only way win. He is a criminal.

    THIS IS PURE FALLACY. Gov Agkpabio is capable of doing anything stupid. He is trying to cover his thugs who were sent by him to rig the election. pls tell him to release the old man who tried protecting the corpers from being killed and ballot boxes being stolen by his thugs.

    May God help help us the Akwa ibomites.
