The police have restricted access to the head office of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in Rivers State.

A team of policemen stormed the commission’s office on Aba road, Port Harcourt, early on Thursday.

They prevented INEC officials and visitors from going in and out of the office.

The INEC officials were preparing for Saturday’s presidential and legislative elections when the officers restricted access to the office.

It is unclear why the police took the action but some members of the All Progressives Congress (APC) are currently at INEC office protesting a supreme court judgment which barred the party from fielding candidates in the elections.

The protesters are threatening that elections will not hold in the state if the APC is not on the ballot.
