Anambra Election: I am lucky to be alive, signed result under duress, Orumba North LG returning officer says

While speaking at the State Collation Centre at the INEC office in Awka, Otu said that he was teargassed when when the thugs arrived.

On Sunday, the returning officer of Orumba North Local Government Area, Dr Micheal Otu, said he nearly lost his life and had to sign the result under duress after thugs attacked the local government collation centre during Saturday's Anambra Governorship election.

While speaking at the State Collation Centre at the INEC office in Awka, Otu said that he was teargassed when when the thugs arrived.

The returning officer also noted that the score sheets were mutilated and he was made to sign a fake result under duress.

Otu said, "I am lucky to be alive. I was teargassed and as a BP patient I nearly lost my life. I was forced to sign a result which wasn't collated by me. The Polling officer, comfort Omoroge who worked with me compromise.
