The collation officer was urged by the Commissioner of Police of the Presidential Election in Rivers, Aderemi Adeoye, to reveal the identity of those threatening his life.

However, Adias insisted that he won’t proceed until the state’s Resident Electoral Commissioner addressed some of the issues of those threatening him, and the faulty Bimodal Voter Accreditation System, BVAS.

Prior to his announcement, results from 21 local government areas have been collated, but two local government areas – Obio-Akpor and Degema are pending.
