According to reports in some units, the APC candidates is winning in Eight Local Governments while the candidate of the PDP, Emeka Ihedioha is trailing Uzodinma with his large votes in Mbaise LGA. It is not a good outing for the candidate of the Action Alliance and son in-law to the governor of Imo state Uche Nwosu who is coming third in the contest.

However APC members have raised an alarm accusing top government officials of attacking collation centers with a view to changing the results of the election. As a result there is tension in most of the collation centers in the state forcing security operatives to beef up security.

The INEC had announced suspension of collation of results but Vanguard learnt the exercise commenced again at 1:30pm. Uzodinma is leading in most of the LGAs in Orlu senatorial zone.

But collation of results are still on going as at press time. However, the election in the state was marres with violence, ballot box snatching and excessive thuggery.
