The All Progressives Congress candidate, Senator Hope Uzodimma has polled 27,331 while the Accord Party candidate, Ihedi Ohakim scored 2,047.
The result declaration was disrupted at 5am this morning by the PDP agent, Uche Onyeagocha, the Special Adviser to Governor Rochas Okorocha of Imo State on Electoral Matters, Steve Asinobi, and his associate, Paschal Onwukaike.
Their action followed the opposition of the PDP agent to the declaration of the results for Ideato South Local Government Area.
The PDP agent said no other party agent apart from that of the AA signed the result for Ideato South LGA where he alleged that Imo State Governor Rochas Okorocha’s agents chased out all party agents and switched the election results.
