INEC and the police announced a restriction of movement during the ongoing Anambra supplementary governorship election but residents, especially in Idemili North Local Government area flouted the order and went about their normal business.
The apathy of the voters might have to do with the fact that most of the major candidates boycotted the poll.
Markets opened for business and vehicular movements were visible even with the presence of security personnel on the roads.
The November 16 election was marked by low turnout of voters, but today’s election was much worse.
At Idemili North, a NAN report revealed that at Nkpor Uno in Isingwu village, with 3 polling units of 983 registered voters, only 30 were accredited.
The materials were, however, ready while the electoral officials in most of the units arrived at their stations early in the morning with joint security operatives on hand to provide adequate security.
