Protest has broken out in Asaba, the Delta State capital, over the just concluded presidential and National Assembly elections.
In a video seen on Tuesday morning making the rounds on social media, youths in their hundreds are seen chanting the name of the presidential candidate of the Labour Party, Peter Obi.
The voice behind the video said, “this is happening live in Asaba, saying Obi must be the president of Nigeria whether they like it or not. Our votes now.”
However, the Peter Obi Grassroots Mobilisation captioned the video, saying the Asaba youths are protesting and demanding that INEC should do the right (thing) and stop the ongoing rigging.
When contacted by our correspondent, the Police Public Relations Officer in the state, DSP Bright Edafe said the command have drafted policemen to the place to see what is happening and to maintain the peace.”
