Michael Otu, the collation officer for Orumba North local government area of Anambra State in Saturday’s election has claimed he signed the election result under duress, refusing to read out the result.
He further accused officials of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) attached to him of conniving with those who disrupted the electoral process.
He said his experience on the field was pathetic but “I thank God I’m alive. I signed the results, but I didn’t believe in the results”.
“An INEC staff, Assistant Collation Officer, turned me to her house boy. I was monitored around, I signed the result because I saw my life was in danger,” he added.
He further claimed he was tear-gassed and almost collapsed.
