[VIDEO] Woman Delivers A Boy At Polling Unit After Voting For Wike In Rivers |RN

give-birth-Rivers-state

By Ike A. Offor,

It has been seen as a very joyful thing to support that voting for Gov. Nyesom Wike brings life as a woman gives birth to a baby boy after voting for him in Rivers state.

The mood at the polling unit is like a mood in a church during “praise and worship” session when people are caught up in the mood for the holy spirit.

Some of the people in the crowd immediately called the baby, Oga Wike, after the name of the incumbent governor of Rivers State.

It is certain that Nyesom Wike would love to know this woman and her baby boy once the news of his deliverance and his mother’s vote reaches him.

The people in the crowd were almost running away with the baby in joyous mood to celebrate the birth until someone reminded them that the mother is yet to be taken care of but they are running away with the baby.

Congratulations to the mother and her family and welcome to the baby boy.

JUST IN: EFCC Arrests Imo AG, Accuses Okorocha Of Diverting N1bn For Vote Buying

                                           Imo State Govenor, Rochas Okorocha

Eniola Akinkuotu, Abuja

 

The Economic and Financial Crimes Commission has arrested the Accountant-General of Imo State, Uzoho Casmir, for allegedly helping Imo State Governor, Rochas Okorocha, to launder N1.05bn for the governorship and assembly elections on Saturday.

The allegations were contained in an EFCC situation report which was obtained by The PUNCH on Friday.

Okorocha, who is a member of the All Progressives Congress, is supporting his son-in-law, Nwosu of the Action Alliance against the governorship candidate of the APC, Senator Hope Uzodinma.

The act earned Okorocha a suspension from the party last week.

The EFCC report read in part, “The, EFCC, Enugu Zonal Office, Thursday, March 8, 2019 arrested the Acting Accountant General of Imo State, Mr. Uzoho Casmir, on suspicion of laundering the sum of N1.050bn through a new generation bank for the governor of the state, Rochas Okorocha.

“Uzoho’s arrest followed intelligence report that the governor intended to use the money for vote buying in favour of a particular candidate in tomorrow’s gubernatorial election. Intelligence further revealed that Mr Casmir withdrew the amount in three tranches between Tuesday and Thursday this week in the following order; N200m on Tuesday, N500m on Wednesday and N350m on Thursday.

“Meanwhile, the EFCC has blocked the traced accounts, while the arrested Accountant General has been providing useful information to the commission. Mr Casmir was before his appointment, a Director of Finance in Okorocha’s government and was in 2016 fingered in N2bn bailout fund scam, which was then given to the state by the Federal Government for the payment of salary arrears of civil servants.”   (Punch)

SHOCK: Another Cancellation Looms As INEC Has No Result Sheet For Inspection

 

There is palpable apprehension over the results of the presidential and National Assembly elections conducted by the Independent National Electoral Commission [INEC] on February 23, 2019.

Sources have revealed that fear of cancellation of the election result is looming as, 12 days after, INEC has no result sheets for inspection by the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party [PDP], Alhaji Atiku Abubakar.

ElombahNews had reported on March 6 that one week after INEC declared President Muhammadu Buhari of the All Progressives Congress (APC) as the president-elect, the electoral umpire has failed to provide explanations on discrepancies noted in the results of the February 23 presidential election it announced last Wednesday.

It was also reported that the Court of Appeal ordered INEC to allow Atiku Abubakar and his party have unfettered access to all certified copies of the materials used in conducting the 2019 elections.

That court order is reportedly causing tension in INEC as to what to do.

It was also gathered that, soon after the court ruling, INEC on Wednesday ordered its legal department to look into the ruling to advise it appropriately, a source in the know revealed.

It is now two weeks after the conduct of the elections but it seems the Electoral Commission does not have full results in its kitty for inspection.

Worse still is the fact that INEC does not have result sheets and other materials it used for collation of the results, causing anxiety and fears of annulment of elections aftermath of court ruling on Wednesday.

Even of concern is why INEC has yet to provide details of the outcome of the polls either on its website or at its state offices.

Checks conducted through INEC online portal, calls to its states’ offices, wards, local governments, federal constituencies and senatorial districts showed no physical collation or online release of the results.

This is causing fears the election results may have been cooked as efforts were rather placed on declaring winners than following processes as allowed by extant laws before declaration of election results could be done.

When Daily Mail enquired from Oluwole Osaze-Uzi, INEC’s Director of Voter Education and Publicity, it was not successful.

Also, attempts to speak with Festus Okoye, INEC’s National Commissioner on Voter Education was also unsuccessful as his phone rang out.

But several sources told Daily Mail that it should normally take few weeks to collate all election materials “owing to the magnitude of the election and the materials used.

“Nigeria is a large country, we shouldn’t be hasty in some issues but I can agree with you that at least all the materials and equipment used should have been at states’ offices.”

Asked why state offices are yet to have the equipment and materials, he said state offices should be asked or INEC “higher authority would be in a position to answer that.”

A source at the legal department of INEC told Daily Mail on phone that “it was always going to be tough providing the materials the court has ordered.

“I don’t know why materials used during the election have not be submitted but I am not in a position to speak – I am in the legal department, my mandate is not to speak on issues like this.”

According to her, “There should be thing to inspect, in fact all things being sought should be available for a petitioner to examine – that’s what all relevant laws in the country says.”

When asked what if the petitioner cannot be provided the materials being sought, she responded, “That is left for the court to decide, but it could mean cancellation of result because you can’t announce nothing for something.”  (ElombahNews)

Police In Akwa Ibom Confirm Arrest Of 153 Suspected Thugs ‘Imported’ From Edo State |RN

Joe Effiong, Uyo

 

The Commissioner of Police, Akwa Ibom State command, Mr Ibrahim Kaoje, has finally confirmed the arrest of 153 suspected thugs from Edo State who stormed the state on the invitation of the All Progressives Congress (APC).

Kaoje who spoke through the Police Public Relations Officer (PPRO) of the command, Mr Odiko MacDon, told the press on Thursday at the police headquarters, Ikot Akpanabia, Uyo, that the IGP Special Tactical Squad, Uyo, while on intensive patrol, in Ikot Ekpene local government, arrested the suspected thugs loaded in 11 buses and led by one Jerry Egbom.

The CP admitted that the group came from Edo State.

“They were suspected to be coming into Akwa Ibom State for the purpose of causing havoc during the March 9, 2019, gubernatorial/ state Houses of Assembly elections.

“However, a preliminary investigation into the matter by the state Criminal Investigation Department reveals that the suspects were APC youths from Edo extraction, who were on their way to the state to attend the final APC youth rally scheduled to hold on March 7, 2019.

“Investigation further revealed that an on-the-spot search was conducted on all the suspects, and nothing incriminating was found on any of them after the arrest.

“However, the command has not foreclosed further investigation into the matter to determine any likely culpability in accordance with rule of law,” the police said.

The police also confirmed the alleged shooting at the APC governorship candidate, Nsima Ekere’s campaign headquarters in Uyo where one person, Ndifreke Sunday, was injured.

He said the injured person had been taken to police clinic for treatment even as the investigation was ongoing to apprehend those responsible for the shooting.

The police boss pledged that the force would continue to be apolitical, neutral and committed to free, fair and peaceful 2019 general elections. He stressed that the command has zero tolerance for violence would not accommodate any form of thuggery.

To buttress the claim, the CP said four units of mobile policemen with a total of 248 men, two special protection units, four commissioners of an assistant inspector general of police among others had been deployed to supervise the governorship and state Assembly elections next Saturday.  (The Sun)

BREAKING: 1 Dead, As Military Invades Ateke Tom’s Home, Destroy Property, Kill 3 Dogs|RN

TONY JOHN, Port Harcourt

 

One person has been reportedly shot dead, during alleged military onslaught at the home of the Amanyanabo of Okochiri Kingdom, Okrika Local Government Area of Rivers State, Ateke Tom.

Our correspondent gathered that the fierce-looking military men, who invaded the home of Ateke, a former Niger Delta warlord, also arrested over five persons, who were his guests.

It was further gathered that the soldiers, during the operation, killed three dogs belonging to the monarch and destroyed all the security cameras at the palace.

One of the media aides to the king, Tamuno Peters, who confirmed the development, stated that the soldiers upon invasion of the palace shot one person and carried away the body.

He narrated: “Military men in over 20 vans, invaded the home of King Ateke Tom, without any information.

“They killed a youth and carried his body. They killed three dogs because they were barking at them.

“The army also destroyed all the security cameras at the home of King Ateke. They entered the camera room and destroyed everything so that they will not be recorded.

“They went to the guest quarters and arrested five persons for no just cause. They carted away money from the room of his majesty,” Peters claimed.  (The Sun)
