The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) has announced the suspension of ongoing re-run elections in specific constituencies due to significant disruptions, irregularities, and the abduction of election officials. The affected areas include:

1.) Ikono/Ini Federal Constituency, Akwa Ibom State

Elections have been suspended in two Polling Units (Village Hall, EdemUrua 003 in Ini LGA and Village Hall Mbiabong Ikot Udo 003 in Ikono LGA) where all election materials were forcefully taken away by hoodlums.

2.) Enugu South 1 State Constituency, Enugu State

Elections have been suspended in all eight Polling Units where the original result sheets were not made available for inspection by voters prior to the commencement of the polls.

3.) Kunchi/Tsanyawa State Constituency, Kano State

Elections have been suspended in all ten Polling Units in Kunchi LGA due to the invasion, vandalization, and disruption caused by thugs.

The decision of the Commission is in accordance with the provisions of Section 24(3) of the Electoral Act, 2022. Further necessary measures for the affected constituencies will be announced after the Commission's meeting on Monday.
