By Ndubuisi Emeka
The All Progressives Congress [APC] governorship candidate in Abia State, Mr Uche Ogah, has been duped by a con man who claimed to be a relation and “personal assistant” to the Independent national Electoral Commission [INEC] National Official, Mrs. Amina Zakari.
Mr Ogah has reportedly been visiting INEC collation and returning agents in the state with offers of payment of Ten Million Naira to each agent, after the election, if they agree to help him alter the result of the March 9 election.
Unknown to him, however, he was secretly recorded by one of the agents who subsequently forwarded the audio to INEC headquarters and the state police command.
According to our source, Mr Ogah was introduced to the con man by Chief Emeka Offor.
Ogah, it was gathered, paid one hundred million Naira to the imposter who assured him that the State’s Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC) will be changed on Friday.
Following the report made to the state police command in Umuahia, the con man is reportedly on the run.
