The Coalition of South East Youth Leaders, COSEYL, has alleged that the Saturday presidential and National Assembly elections were rigged in Rivers State.

According to Ibem, the Labour Party won in many places but it was rigged for the ruling All Progressives Congress, APC.

The coalition vowed to embark on mega protests in Rivers to ensure that the right results emerge.

“It is very clear that they lost woefully to the Labour Party, LP, Presidential Candidate in Rivers State and some politicians with their thugs shamelessly resorted to beating an innocent INEC staff forcing them to alter the will of the people. Such frivolous acts will not stand.
