The eve of the election when the electoral materials arrive at the council I was asked to provide security which I did by deploying six of my soldiers. That same day we started hearing gun shot so we had to move to that location on reaching their at the Okiri Sq we saw no one but we found empty shell of gun numbering 13. I now sent an intelligence report to my superior. The morning of the 11th their where gun shots at one of the party hq. On the day of election I set out my patrol at about 5:30 in the morning by dividing them into wards to cover the 17 wards due to the volatility of the area. I am unable to tell the court that the materials got to their destinations. Before the materials left innec office I started receiving calls that materials has been hijacked. I sent my patrol men who got their and reported to me that all they could find where just the Coopers and abandoned vehicle. I called the police DPO immediately who informed me that his men r on their way to the scene. The bus driver who conveyed the materials was no where to be found . I stationed myself at the hq. I noticed that in some unit u can’t find anyone when I asked why they said 2 much gun shot. I think he said it is because of the incident before and after. The intimidation was equal to none. Because of what is happening in Onelga my hq sent an armoured tanker. Some of the empty shells recovered where high calibre that prompted me to seek for assistance. If their was a credible election on the said day why was it postponed to the nxt ? Our lawyer sits down……..

INEC opposes. Witness – I was there. I can tell u what happened. Abua has two major cult groups. Our lawyer insist he must continue. Innec withdraws their objection.

However some materials and where deployed to various wards I received call from innec staff that materials has been hijacked by hoodlums other persons did call me as well. We received so many calls my team and I tried to rescue but couldn’t as they r more familiar with the environment. I did not go to Odual as it is far we have to go through Byesa. Our resources was mainly in Abua I could not pursue the hoodlums who ran to Odual. We rescued some persons at okana close to their town hall the electorate where the people rescued by my team. The hoodlums with arms we couldn’t arrest. The issue of electioneering started with accreditation and their was no such thing that I sighted not in any unit or ward.
