The Rivers State Collation Officer for the presidential election, Prof. Charles Adias, earlier on Tuesday, adjourned the collation of results following an alleged threat to his life by some supporters of a political party.


Adias, who is the Vice Chancellor of the Federal University, Otueke, announced the adjournment on Tuesday morning while addressing journalists at the State Collation Centre in Port Harcourt.

Oyo News learnt that despite the appeal from the Commissioner of Police in the State, Aderemi Adeoye, to disclose the names of those threatening his life, the Professor declined.

He however insisted that he will proceed once the state’s Resident Electoral Commissioner addressed some of the concerns of those threatening him, including fixing the faulty Bimodal Voter Accreditation System (BVAS).

Results of 21 Local Government Areas in the state had been collated with two remaining – Degema and Obio-Akpor.
