One of the Supervisory Presiding Officers in the ongoing governorship election in Anambra State has fled with 42 result sheets.

This was made known by Gabriel Odor, the Collation Officer of Idemili South Local Government Area of Anambra, at the head office of the Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC) in Awka, the state capital, during the final collation of results on Sunday.

Odor, who is a lecturer at the University of Calabar, said because of the development, elections could not hold in the affected areas.

Meanwhile, Charles Soludo, the candidate of the All Progressives Grand Alliance (APGA) has maintained his lead in Saturday's election in Anambra State.

This comes as INEC officials have commenced the official collation of results from the various local government areas in the state. 

The major contenders for the governorship seat include Soludo of APGA; Andy Uba of the All Progressives Congress (APC), Valentine Ozigbo of the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and Ifeanyi Ubah of the Young Progressives Party (YPP).
