Armed thugs yesterday set ablaze election results in Zendesha council Ward of Ukum Local Government Area of Benue State.
The thugs, who were shooting sporadically in the air at the collation centre before getting access to the results, hijacked the ballot boxes and set the results on fire. The thugs were said to be sponsored by opposition parties in the state.
BDSUNDAY gathered that the result of the gubernatorial and state Assembly re-run in Ukum Local Government favoured candidates of the People’s Democratic Party (PDP).
It was alleged that the state Assembly candidate of the social Democratic Party (SDP), Benjamin Ashaver, was the brain behind the action.
