Abuja - Scores of protesters clamouring for the declaration of Abiodun Faleke as the governor- elect of Kogi State on Thursday laid siege on the office of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) headquarters in Abuja, reports Vanguard.
The aggrieved protesters who arrived the commission’s headquarters at about 11:00am, said the scheduled December 5 supplementary poll was an affront on democracy.

The placards carrying protesters sat strategically at the entrance of the INEC office.
They accused INEC of plunging Kogi State into political turmoil and uncertainty, by declaring the victory of the duo of Abubakar Audu and James Abiodun Faleke of the All progressives Congress (APC) inconclusive.
One of the protesters, Hajia Halima Alfa said Audu had won the election before his death.
She noted that INEC created the problem and must hasten to solve it.
