#BayelsaDecides2023: APC, Accord Party Agents Clash at Collation Centre



There was commotion at the collation centre in Bayelsa State after agents of the Accord Party, Mr Victor Werinepere-Fisi, and his All Progressives Congress counterpart, Dr Dennis Otiotio clashed on Monday.


A report by Punch revealed that Werinepere-Fisi had hit Otiotio which led to violence and disruption of the event.


The incident happened after the results from Brass Local Government Area had been collated and the party agents were making their observations on the results presented by Collation Officer, Prof Rebecca Ape.


Meanwhile, the Independent National Electoral Commission has adjourned the ongoing collation of Bayelsa governorship election results.


The adjournment followed the unavailability of results from Southern Ijaw LGA.


The Returning Officer, Prof Faruq Kuta, who is also the Vice Chancellor of the Federal University Of Technology, Minna, adjourned the collation of the Bayelsa governorship poll for one hour.


Earlier, the commission had shifted the collation of results from Brass and Southern Ijaw from 7 pm on Sunday to noon today (Monday).
