A woman, Momodu Abibat, said to be the woman leader of a party in Ward 2, PU 4 and 6 of Etsako West Local Government Area, Auchi, Edo State, stormed the collation centre at about 6:47 a.m. alleging election malpractice, Premium Times reports.

Mrs Momodu alleged overvoting at her ward and that of the National Chairman of the ruling All Progressives Congress (APC), Adams Oshiomhole.

She demanded cancellation of the results of these wards.

Mrs Momodu told the online newspaper that 700 ballot papers were taken out in her unit but only 300 were used. She said her Electoral Officer, Udo Udodo, and the police officer in charge both told her to let the issue rest, but she shouted that nobody should sign the results from that ward.

The party leader said she has a written a petition and expressed the hope that the matter would be handled diligently.

Mr Oshiomhole had secured a perfect victory for Buhari and the APC in his polling unit.
