The All Progressives Congress has reported the arrest of its agent in Port Harcourt, capital of Rivers State.

The party said in Rivers State, all original results sheets have been removed and photocopied to pave the way for the PDP to write fake results of the elections in the state.

“Similar moves to manipulate the elections and engage in massive thumb printing, starting on Friday evening, with purchased PVCs are also taking place not just in Rivers but in the South-east”, the APC said.

”These developments are worrisome and do not bode well for a free, fair, transparent and peaceful elections. We are therefore calling on local and international observers to pay a close attention to these desperate measures aimed at thwarting the will of the people,” APC
said. THENEWS
