Listen to article

The Governor of Rivers State, Chibuike Amaechi, has been stopped from moving around different polling units in the state by the military.

Channels Television's correspondent in Port Harcourt, the state capital, said Mr. Amaechi, who drove himself in a black 4WD, was stopped by the Brigade Commander of the second Brigade, Bori Camp, Essien Essien, who engaged the governor in a debate over his mission to ascertain the availability of result sheets at the polling units.

Against the advice of the Brigade Commander to remain at his polling centre, the governor challenged the Army Officer to arrest him as he drove back to the government house after his accreditation.
