#AnambraDecides2021: Army commander screams at Victor Umeh, turns back APGA chief from Ihiala

Victor Umeh the state agent of the All Progressive Grand Alliance (APGA) has been turned back by a military commander who screamed at him as the governorship election in Ihiala LGA wraps up today.

The Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) had fixed Tuesday for supplementary election in the council to complete the inconclusive guber race which started on Saturday.

At about 10am Mr Umeh arrived at the headquarters of Ihiala but a commander of the Nigerian Army accosted him querying what he came to do.

“You are not supposed to be here,” the military personnel screamed on top of his voice. The politician responded that he came “to ensure things go well”.

“You are a state agent, not LGA agent,” the Army commander said and ordered the APGA chief to return back to where he came from.

The supplementary poll is ongoing amidst tight security.
