Osun: INEC officer arrested for allegedly tearing controversial result sheet

A man who claimed to be a staff member of the Independent National
Electoral Commission was arrested by party supporters at Ayedaade Local
Government Area of Osun State for tearing an INEC result sheet believed
to be under contention when results of the state governorship election
were being released.

The man, Salawu Mutiu Kolawole, with an
INEC identification card, said a superior officer, Mrs Aderinoye, called
him and directed him to proceed to St Peter’s in Ayedaade to tear the
result sheet.

A Peoples Democratic Party agent had
contended that 1,000 votes were deducted from the party’s result in the
area earlier during the collation of results at the INEC office in

Kolawole said, “An Electoral Officer,
Mrs Aderinoye, in Ayedaade council, called me and asked me to go to the
council and tear the result sheet.

“Before I could ask her why I had to go
and do it, she hung up. I approached another EO, Mr Oladunjoye,  and
told him what my boss said. I went there to tear it but while doing it,
two party agents met me there and arrested me.”
