Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has suspended the process of conducting the Governorship and State House of Assembly Polls in Rivers State.
The agency says the decision was taken, following the widespread disruption of the ongoing electoral process by hoodlums in the State.
INEC National Officer in charge of voter education, Festus Okoye, in a statement, says the life of its staff across the State is also in danger.
Okoye explains that INEC after a meeting of its top officials on the development, is worried over the credibility of the electoral process in the State.
At present, he says there is violent disruption of electoral process in most of the polling units and collation centres in the State.
He adds that INEC staff are being taken hostage by hoodlums who had been seizing poll materials.
