BREAKING: Soldiers, police clash at INEC office in Rivers

THERE was a clash between soldiers and policemen at the main gate of the headquarters of the Independent National Electoral Commission in Port Harcourt.

Though the reason for the disagreement was not clear because most journalists were barred from entering the place by soldiers, it was gathered that the soldiers wanted to take over the manning of the gate, a decision that was said to have been resisted by the police.
Many persons, including journalists, who were close to the INEC office gate left immediately, to avoid choking as a result of the teargas that was shot into the air by the police at a point.
