Uyo - A video has exposed how officials of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) colluded with supporters of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in Akwa Ibom to rig the presidential and national assembly elections in favour of the party.

The incident happened in the village square – Ikot Eko Ibon village – within the full glare of the villagers.

The incident happened shortly after the INEC officials completed the accreditation of voters in the area.

Rather than commenced with voting at the stipulated time, the officials waited until some PDP chieftains arrived around 4pm.

The official then ordered all the voters to move away from the polling centre.

Gunshot was fired to scare away the voters.

The PDP supporters then began thumb-printing ballot papers, under the supervision of INEC officials.
