Just in: INEC reacts as forged results surface in Kogi polls

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has broken the silence on viral forged results from Kogi State in the ongoing off-cycle gubernatorial election

A civil society organisation, YIAGA Africa, earlier raised the alarm on Saturday morning, over the discovery of election results from a polling unit in Kogi even before the end of the political race.

The results, which emanated from Polling Unit 004, Eni Ward of Ogori/Mangogo in Kogi State, has been making the rounds on the Nigerian social media space.

Yiaga Africa, in a post on its X page, called on the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) to probe the forged results with immediate effect.

While reacting, the electoral commission, in a statement via X, disclosed that the senior officials deployed to Kogi State are investigating the incident.

The statement reads, “Our attention has been drawn to a report that filled result sheets were discovered in some polling units in Kogi State.

“The Commission views this situation seriously.

“Our senior officials deployed to the State are currently investigating the incident(s). The Commission will communicate its decision earnestly.”
