Our correspondent gathered that the suspected Biafran agitators aimed at disrupting the poll in Anambra State.

When one of newsmen monitoring the poll in Ihiala ran into the avalanche of security operatives, he was ordered back.

“Find yourself out of this place. Your brothers (suspected IPOB members) have engaged here for over three hours.

“Some of them are still inside the forest. Just find your way out of this place for your safety,” a police man stated.

The development caused residents to desert the area.

Efforts to get the police authorities to confirm the incident did not yield any results as their phone lines continued to indicate not available.
