#INECElectionResult has spurred some women in Kogi Central to invoke their local gods and taken to the streets to protest what they described as “injustice” following the outcome of the senatorial election in the district.
In videos trending online, the women in an all white ritual regalia demonstrated urging the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to do justice to their votes and declare Natasha Akpoti Uduaghan as Senator-elect.
It is reported the white ritual is done at sacred times to invoke the ancestral spirits of war against those who cheat or cause pain to the land.
Recall that Natasha had rejected the declaration of Abubakar Sadiku-Ohere of the All Progressive Congress (APC) as winner of the February 25 election for Kogi Central defeated District following the irregularities that marred the process.
Sadiku-Ohere defeated Mrs Natasha Akpoti-Uduaghan, the candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP, to emerge winner of the keenly contested election. Prof. Rotimi Ajayi, the INEC Returning Officer for Kogi Central Senatorial District, announced the result on Tuesday in Okene.
