Election Observer Shot Dead In Enugu

It has been revealed that an election observer has been killed in Enugu during Saturday's governorship poll 

A local election observer was killed by stray bullet on Saturday in southeast Nigeria’s Enugu state, police said.

“The man was a local observer monitoring the gubernatorial and house of assembly election,” a police officer who did not want to be named, told AFP.

“He was hit by stray bullet fired by a policeman to disperse a group of protesters,” he said.

The police officer said the protesters were pushing for the postponement of Saturday’s gubernatorial poll to give more time for Ayogu Eze, the candidate of the All Progressives Congress (APC) to campaign.

Eze who has been facing a legal challenge to his nomination, was only cleared to run by the court on Thursday.

Eze’s supporters insisted the election should be delayed so that he would have enough time to canvass for votes.

Local media also confirmed the killing.
