According to reports on Saturday, a female staff member of the electoral body was seen crying while alerting the state headquarters about the incident.

The Rivers state Police Public Relations Officer, Deputy Superintendent Police Nnamdi Omoni, when contacted said he was not yet aware of the development.
”But if it is true, we are going to launch an investigation into the matter to get to the person who did it,” he said.
