A video has emerged suggesting that Transport Minister and former governor of Rivers State Rotimi Amaechi, accompanied by 10 trucks full of soldiers was involved in violence and rigging during the rerun of legislative (s)elections in the state on Saturday.
Watch the incident:
A witness claimed that Amaechi was involved in ballot box snatching with military protection. It is difficult to establish if these allegations are true from the video in which gunshots were heard at a result collation centre in Phalga Local Government Area, with dozens of security personnel running around.
Several people, including two police officers have reportedly been killed over the weekend in electoral violence.
