The women, donning black attires and led by House of Representatives candidate for Ogu/Bolo Local Government Area, Maureen Tamuno, came in several buses from various parts of the state as early as 8:30am to pour out their frustrations.

Armoured tanks barricaded the two lanes leading to INEC office while gun-wielding police and military policemen in large numbers were positioned in strategic points in the vicinity.

Monday’s protest by the APC women followed Sunday’s version of the party’s youths from various parts of the state to the Commission’s headquarters where gunshots were fired after the protesters prevented an SUV believed to be conveying the PDP governorship candidate in Rivers, Nyesom Wike, from leaving the area.

The APC youths also attacked other vehicles moving in and out of the area.

Meanwhile Public Relations Officer of the Commission in the state, Anthonia Nwobu, told our correspondent on Monday morning that results of the presidential election from all the local government areas would be made public at a press briefing by 12:00pm.

According to her, Returning Officers from all the areas would hand the final results to the Resident Electoral Commission, Gecila Khan, during the briefing.
