The women protesters 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 APC inconclusive.
Spokesperson of the women, Folashade Joseph said INEC created the problem and must hasten to solve it.
A detachment of policemen from the nearby state police headquarters kept close watch to forestall breakdown of peace, because of the already tense situation occasioned by the ‘inconclusive’ poll.
