Igerebara also narated how Mowan Exeter, his elder
Speaking at the state Collation Centre in Port Harcourt, Igerebara said there was no way the number of recorded voters could have voted during the ensuing stampede.
The Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, had announced 72,330 votes for Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, and 72,766 votes for APC in the presidential polls held in Andoni Local Government Area, same day they were killed.
According to him, “he was killed alongside his elder brother and nephew. Thereafter, Mowan’s corpse was dragged round the streets of Asarama.
“At that point, everybody in the community ran away. From 8a.m. till 5p.m., you could hardly see even a fowl on the street.
“It is unimaginable for anybody to say elections took place in that Azarama Ward 9. Again, in Ward 8, precisely, Ajaghaja, Rivers APC Ex-Official, Ignatius Fubara, was tied as you would tie a crocodile.
“He was then taken to a slab where his head was chopped off. And those who chopped off his head demonstrated round the community with it.
“It is clear that a sane person would not stay in such environment to conduct elections, yet the Collation Officer and the Electoral Officer turned in results.
“For a human being to turn in results on the blood of innocent souls is the height of injustice and the authorities must look into it.”
