Results of the 2015 governorship election collated in Imo State show Governor Rochas Okorocha clearly winning in 19 out of 27 Local Government Areas.
Okorocha, who is the candidate of the All Progressives Congress, has so far polled about 373,269 votes in Ideato North, Ideato South, Isu, Nkwerre, Nwangele, Onu-Imo, Orsu and Njaba LGAs.
Other local governments where the governor has the majority votes are Owerri Municipal, Okigwe, Oru West, Owerri North, Ihitte-Uboma, Ehime-Mbano and Mbaitoli.
Also, Okorocha won in Orlu, Owerri West, Obowo and Ikeduru ahead of the candidate of the opposition Peoples Democratic Party, Emeka Ihedioha, who polled over 200,000 votes, and Capt Emmanuel Iheanacho of the All Progressives Grand Alliance.
Although the conduct of the governorship and state house of assembly elections has been generally hailed as peaceful, there were widespread allegations of ballot box snatching and irregularities in some wards and polling units.
Results were cancelled in some LGAs, such as Isu, Nwangele, Ngor-Okpala and Obowo.
Also, voting did not take place in over 30 polling units in the state, particularly in Ikeduru, Obowo, Oguta, Oru West and Ezinihitte LGAs.
While some members of the National Youth Service Corps on election duty in Ohaji-Egbema were allegedly attacked and brutalised by hoodlums, security agents arrested about five unidentified men dressed in fake Army uniforms and armed with AK47 rifles as they attempted to snatch ballot boxes in Aboh-Mbaise LGA on Saturday.
Meanwhile, Iheanacho on Sunday called for the cancellation of the governorship election on the ground that it was fraught with malpractices.
