Mr Kelechi Okorie, the All progressive Congress (APC) chairmanship candidate in the last Ebonyi local council polls conducted on Saturday has rejected the result of the polls for Ivo Local government area.
Okorie alleged that the poll was marred with massive electoral fraud in the place.
It said the attack was carried out when Okorie resisted the stuffing of an electoral box with over 200 hundred thumb-printed ballot papers by a member of the PDP.
In a reaction, Mr Onyekachi Nwebonyi, Chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party(PDP) in Ebonyi, described the allegations as baseless and unfounded. He said: “PDP in the state is a peaceful party and could not have endulged in such act. “The local government election was free, fair and credible. The candidate in question should re-examine the situation and stop blaming anyone for his failure,” he told the News Agency of Nigeria.
