LAGOS APRIL 12TH (URHOBOTODAY)-The Independent National Electoral Commission has refuted reports of irregularities during the governorship and state House of Assembly elections in Delta State on Saturday.
While the elections were ongoing, there were reports especially by the members of the Labour Party and the All Progressives Congress, alleging that there were cases of snatching of election materials, discrimination against their supporters and other irregularities.

There were reports of snatching of election materials in Bomadi, Ndokwa East, and Isoko North local government areas.
Also, the governorship candidate of LP, Great Ogboru, claimed that PDP thugs chased away LP agents in the Ikah North East, the local government area of the PDP candidate.
He said, “In about four or five local governments in the state, elections were poorly conducted; in fact I will say that there were no elections at all. Ikah North East is one of them. That is where the PDP candidate comes from.
“There they tore the cards of all our agents and drove them away and said unless you are voting for the PDP, you will not be allowed to vote.”
However, our correspondent could not independently confirm these reports as all the wards Sunday PUNCH visited in Warri North, Warri South, Warri South West, Ughelli North and Ethiope East, accreditation and voting went relatively smoothly except for arguments over missing results sheets.
When contacted, the state Resident Electoral Commissioner, Mr. Anidi Ikowak, said he monitored the elections in all the local government areas of the state, and could confirm that the reports were false.
