Rev Monday Udoh-Tom, INEC Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC) for Delta State has confirmed the killing of an election official after Saturday’s presidential and National Assembly elections in the state.
Udoh-Tom disclosed this when he spoke with newsmen on Monday in Asaba, adding that the unnamed official was shot on his way to deliver election results on Saturday at Ukwani Local Government Area of the state.
Udoh-Tom said: “There was an attack in Ukwani LGA where one of our staff was shot on his way with the election results after the election.
The gunmen opened fire at their bus and unfortunately killed the INEC official [while] others sustained injuries. The other ad hoc staff who were injured were identified as members of the National Youth Service Corps (NYSC) who are now receiving treatment, but we are planning on how to move them to a hospital in Asaba.”
