INEC suspends Ekiti bye-election

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has suspended the ongoing Ekiti East State Constituency 1 bye-election.

The election was suspended following the outbreak of violence in various polling units in the LGA.

A policewoman and two others were killed by suspected political thugs.

“The situation is such that, a conducive environment no longer exists for further electoral activity at the PUs and the Collation centers. In view of this development, the Commission has suspended the election forthwith,” Tella Adeniran, INEC resident electoral commissioner for Ekiti, said in a statement.
