Presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar, and the National Chairman of the party, Prince Uche Secondus, have shown video clips of alleged rigging of the February 23 presidential and National Assembly elections to members of the National Peace Committee headed by a former Head of State, Gen. Abdulsalami Abubakar (retd.).
Reports say the videos, presented in Abuja on Thursday night, showed clips of how soldiers allegedly brutalised PDP members in some states and the sacking of some polling units by thugs without the security agents who were present taking any action.
Meanwhile, the former vice-president and his party has rejected the results saying they would seek redress in court.
Abubakar, in his response said he had been trying to meet with Atiku and his team since the announcement of the election results by the Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission, Mahmood Yakubu, in Abuja in the early hours of Wednesday.
