CHAIRMANSHIP candidates of All Progressives Congress (APC) in Kwara state have been declared winners by the state independent electoral commission (KWASIEC) in all the 16 local government council areas of the state in the council poll conducted on Saturday.
He also said that 4 councillorship seats were inconclusive in Ilorin West, Moro and Edu local government areas of the state.
Meanwhile, the state chairman of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) in the state, Akogun Iyiola Oyedepo, has urged the Police command in the state to release some members of the party arrested on Sunday during a protest at the KWASIEC office.
It was gathered that some PDP members had stormed KWASIEC office in Ilorin on Sunday demanding for fair and accurate outcome of the election from the electoral umpire.
In the process, it was also gathered that some members of the opposition party were arrested by security personnel.
“Many of our members have been arrested just because they showed resentment against electoral fraud. The question I want to ask is: If these people are popular why ballot snatching? If they are popular why arresting our members? If they are popular why votes doctoring? This council election is the worst in the history of Kwara state and Nigeria by extension”, he said.
There were also protests on Saturday and Sunday on the streets of Ilorin, the Kwara state capital over delay in the release of the election result.
The State Government subsequently issued a statement calling on all citizens and residents of the state to remain calm and law abiding.
The Kwara state police command also warned against what it described as unlawful gatherings and processions by political thugs.
