The SDP governorship candidate in Kogi State, Murtala Ajaka, alleged that original result sheets of three local governments, including Okene’, Okehi, and Adavi, are missing. “All the electoral officers in Okene and Adavi local governments have compromised. They are trying to dent the image of INEC,” Ajaka added.
