Mr. Uwandulu, who spoke to journalists on the premises of DSIEC, alleged that he won the election in Isele-Azagba Ward 6, Oshimili North local government area.
“My name is Samson Uwandulu. I contested the councillorship election in Ward 6, Isele-Azagba. After the election, the electoral officer for the ward counted the votes in the presence of all party agents.
“From the counted figures, I polled 408 votes, while the PDP candidate got 317 votes. But before I could be pronounced the winner, the officials stopped the process, and they all entered a car and drove off,” Mr. Uwandulu claimed.
Efforts to contact DSIEC’s Director of Public Affairs, Arubi Orugboh, for reaction to the councillorship candidate’s allegation were unsuccessful as he did not respond to calls or a text message.
