Meanwhile, the governorship candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Aminu Ibrahim, told journalists that the process was marred by police intimidation, rigging and vote buying ”championed by the APC led administration in the state”.
He said there was no level playing ground for all parties involved.
”Hours to the election, the police commissioner withdrew my police escort, upon inquiry, they said they went for a briefing. I was left without security.
“Days to the election, APC thugs razed down my building which houses the headquarters of PDP in Ringim Local Government Area. I reported it to the police; they said that the suspects are still at large.
“The police have not been fair to us, they denied me security to intimidate me and APC ‘contractor’, Mr Isa Gerawa is moving in a heavy motorcade of policemen with arms,” he said.
”They intimidated and beat up my agent at Maduba ward in Ringim. This man, Isa Gerawa ordered for the arrest of my agent, they took him away for hours together with the ballot box,” he added.
Efforts to speak with the police command in Jigawa proved abortive as both the police commissioner, Bala Senchi, and the command spokesperson, Audu Jinjiri, declined to comment.
