True, LP supporters protest in Enugu

CLAIM: A Twitter user, @chukzwrld, shared a video claiming that Enugu residents camped in the INEC office on Monday, 20 March 2023, “demanding the restoration of their stolen mandate!”

FINDING: In the video, protesters sang and prayed in Igbo, a language widely spoken in Enugu state, and they held posters of the Labour Party (LP) governorship candidate in Enugu, Chijioke Edeoga. Enugu-based journalists confirmed the incident saying they are LP supporters protesting due to allegations of manipulation of the governorship election results of two outstanding local government areas – Nsukka and Nkanu East. In response, the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) announced the suspension of collation in those local government areas.
