FINDINGS: A scrutiny of the result sheet shows that the number of accredited voters on the result sheet is six hundred and seventy-eight (678), while the number of spoiled ballot papers is zero (0). The result from the said polling unit was uploaded on INEC IREV’s portal. 

Voting didn’t take place in seven (7) polling units in Orlu LGA, according to a YIAGA Africa’s statement, which clarified voting status across different locations in the state. The ICIR had also reported that the LP candidate in the state had called for the cancellation of results in some polling units due to the crisis and absence of security personnel in parts of Orlu and Orsu.
