Following a protest by some members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) in the state who threatened that there would be no election unless the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) allows the party to field its candidates for the Saturday’s election has led to the State Police Command barricading the entrance to the Rivers State headquarters of INEC in Port Harcourt.

But the police, on sensing the protest, stormed the commission’s office on Aba road and cordoning off the office. The police blockade prevented both INEC officials as well as the protesters from gaining access into the commission’s premises.

The Supreme Court had upheld the judgement as well as struck out an application by the APC seeking to compel INEC, to recognize all its candidates in the forthcoming elections in Rivers State.
