INEC Official Prevents Journalists from Election Collation Centre


On March 19, an official from the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) ordered four security officers to prevent Ayo Adenaiye, an Arise TV news correspondent; James Akpa Oche, a campus reporter at Bayero University, Kano; Stephen Enoch, a reporter with Plus TV Africa, and at least three other journalists from various outlets from accessing a vote collation center in the city of Kano.

Ayo disclosed that INEC officials had a list that excluded many journalists from entering the collation center.
