CHAOS: Two Faint, Many Injured In Anambra Women, Police Clash!

Two women fainted while several others were injured when security agents dispersed about 300 women protesting the Anambra State governorship election on Wednesday at the state office of the Independent National Electoral Commission in Awka.
The women, who identified themselves as Anambra Women, called for the cancellation of the election and the discontinuation of the supplementary election called by INEC at a yet-to-be-announced date.
They carried placards with the inscription, 'Anambra not for sale', 'No election was conducted in Anambra', 'Fresh poll not supplementary poll', 'INEC cancel 608,000 votes not 113, 113 votes', among others.
The women were dispersed by security operatives attached to INEC office, who fired teargas canisters into their midst, leaving many of the elderly women wounded while two persons fainted.
One of their leaders, Mrs. Tina Akonobi, said they were at the commission's office to "mourn for the disaster, destruction, doom, robbery and fraud that took place on the November 16."
Akonobi added,"The election was a sham aimed at insulting the integrity, intelligence and intellectual ability of the people of the state and Nigeria in general.
"INEC brought a fraudulent register three days to election where they removed names of voters whose name starts with the letter 'O' like Okonkwo and Okeke at Idemili.
"They brought fraudulent people to conduct election here; it was a scam and destruction of a generation and Igbo land.
"We are calling for the cancellation and resignation of Prof. Attahiru Jega for the doom that is impending because this is what will happen in 2015."
