The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) alleged that some of its ad hoc staff assigned to Urhonigbe South, Orhionmwon Local Government Area of Edo State, were yet to be accounted for.
The Director, Planning and Monitoring, INEC, Mr. Paul Omokore, at the Edo Governorship Election Virtual Situation Control Room, holding via Zoom, said results sheets hijacked by hoodlums were also unaccounted for.
He said there was electoral violence in the area. The missing members of the ad-hoc staff were deployed to polling units 06 and 07 in Ward 8, adding that violence had escalated to five more polling units in the LGA.
He, however, said security agencies had been able to retrieve some ballot boxes stolen in the process.
